Gardening for the Pantry

Just what do we garden for? For some of us, it’s to beautify the yard; for others, it’s to eat fresh salads and bits of things during the summer. For me, it’s to fill the pantry. When I plan and plant the gardens, my planning is how to fill the cupboard for the winter months.

We have enjoyed nearly a full month of beautiful weather.  Perhaps we could use a bit more rain. It was delightful that when our house was full of guests throughout July. It was sunny and only rained at night.  It doesn’t get more perfect than that.
