Storing the Harvest (Thoughts from the Garden Episode 9)

One of the best things about gardening is having a steady supply of home-grown foods throughout the year. The objective of storing your harvest is having enough crops through the winter until next year’s crops come in. There are a number of ways to keep your crops through the winter:

  1. Canning
  2. Freezing
  3. Cold Storage
  4. Fermentation and pickling
  5. Dehydrating

It’s best to be familiar with all of these because they all have advantages depending on what you want to preserve.
