How’s that for a nifty (thrifty) title!
I think it’s a good idea to keep track of what you are doing to get ahead. There are many ways, but here is a little tracking method I learned from Justice Desserts Blog:
Let’s see what I can come up with using her formula:
Planting: I’m putting the 1/4 inch root part of every onion I cut for cooking back into the garden for future onions (yes it works!) Also, planting the eyes off every potato I cut up for cooking back into the garden. Yes! They will make FREE potatoes. I jog out there, making it a little exercise routine as well.
Harvesting: swiss chard, green onions, cabbage, rhubarb, ground cherries,
Preserving:ground cherries, hickory nuts from the woods
Prep something: Cooking sale turkeys and putting the extra meat in the freezer for future quick casserole dinners after long days at school.
Manage Reserves: Going through what is left of last year’s canning extravaganza to see what needs to be eaten up. Rotation, rotation, rotation!
