Catching Up - Part 2

In my 2nd "Catching Up" post you can see that in addition to the corn and onions and almost 50 pounds of carrots we put up during harvest season, we also put up:

 49 quarts of green beans

17 quarts of beets and 15 pints of pickled beets

AND ... 11 1/2 bushels of potatoes !
This year's produce combined with leftover produce from last year will serve our family until next harvest.  We also butchered Songbird's alternate 4-H lamb, purchased and butchered a hog from the 4-H fat stock sale, butchered 7 roosters, and, thus far, during hunting season Farmer Boy has harvested numerous dove, a doe and 3 pheasants.  Since August, our monthly grocery bill has been reduced to less than $175.00 per month.  Most of those purchases are for fresh fruit, dairy (milk, cheese, butter, yogurt), breads, and condiments.


  1. Wow, that's quite a haul, bravo!!
