This years pickles

This picture was taken in our food cellar. These are the pickles that We have made thus far from this years harvest. I still have 6 more jars to take down and start filling a new shelf. I am pleased. We just froze today 6 liters of tomato sauce from the poly tunnel.

We are still have some jars that left over from last year as well. It is such a satisfying feeling knowing all the food we have stored is from our garden. Hubby was at the grocery store yesterday and saw that one orange cost a $1.15=8kr a piece. He stopped and took a double take to make sure he read it correctly. Hubby came back and said I guess we should start picking apple, pears and plums on the farm.

  1. Pity you can’t grow oranges in your garden! You are certainly saving a lot of money by growing your own, aren’t you, though?

    • Food prices here are pretty high here. Yes, we are saving a lot of money having a vegetable garden. If you take into account,that organic produce are even more expensive than non-organic produce. We are eating organic food that is healthier for us.There are some things that we can not grow ourselves. We still have a lot we purchase every month. Our food prices here have really been fluctuating in this year. I try not to purchase it when the prices are inflated. I buy some other alternative for a cheaper price.

      I just saw on the news this weekend that Organic food sales are up 50 % in the last 6 months Sweden. If Organic food sales continue to rise like this they will be up a 100% at the end of the year. I have already seen a drop in prices for organic food. The grocery stores say they are having difficulty to meeting the demands for these products. They often have a hard time keeping their shelves stocked. I think that is a positve change.

THE INTERNET POST

Welcome to TIP. ABC, CBS, NBC and all the cable news channels are all bought and paid for and report what they are told to report. The MSM lies to and instigates people into political argument and gossip that leads to dead-end roads and distracts from the real issues. There is much better informational news reporting away from the Democrat and Republican tail-spinning arguments that are usually rooted in confusion and hate.. TIP is your alternative.
