We did put up as much food as we’ve been able to. Still there are farmer’s markets and harvest boxes to consider, but it’s been a hard year on gardens all around.

For onions, we use them as quickly as we put them up! As you can see from the pictures, a braid is put up and by the end of the week, we’re down to two onions. So off to the farmer’s market this week for more onions than our little garden can provide. In fact, for onions and tomatoes, we could plant our entire back field, and still not have enough for a year.
