One Small Change: August update & October challenge

Continuing on with the One Small Change project . . .

This month our goal was to preserve more food. 

IMG_0959 We were able to make two outings to pick blackberries, resulting in about 20 bags of frozen berries and six jars of blackberry syrup.

IMG_1048 We dug up our potatoes—Yukon golds and a blue variety.  They’re currently drying on a tarp and will soon be moved to storage. 

We also brought most of our green tomatoes inside, and are hoping for a few more cucumbers and zucchini before the frost gets them. 

For October I’m going to attack the overflowing mending basket and see what can be made to last longer in order to avoid unnecessary purchases.
