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.
