This is my very first year of gardening. I have a small little 4×4 foot garden in my yard.
I read the All New Square Foot Gardening and felt like this was something that I could do.
I’ve been thrilled that I’ve actually been able to grow food in my backyard.
In fact, I have been unprepared to deal with my bounty!
I’ve harvested banana peppers, broccoli and loads of zucchini. And my sons and I have picked several pints of wild raspberries in our neighborhood. I’ve got lots of tomatoes that are about to ripen.
But I’ve been scrambling to figure out what to do with all of it.
I’m more of a meat and potatoes kind of girl than a fruits and veggie type. I’m one of those idiots that buys fruits and vegetables and watches them decompose in the back of her fridge.
I thought that if I grew my own produce, I would somehow be more invested in actually eating the produce.
I am failing.
I need help!
What types of things do you do with your harvest? What’s the best way to save your zucchini? What is your favorite way to use raspberries?
Please give me some ideas so that all this fresh food doesn’t go to waste!
