Its happening, the light is changing and all outside plants are being bathed in an autumn glow. Inside, the glow is due more to using energy, canning and working at a hot stove. Still canning tomatoes today. Question currently going on in my mind is how much food we actually consume over a year. Last year I could not manage missing a shopping weekly, then created menus to see what was needed and have managed to work that up to a monthly shopping trip. I am aiming to increase that knowledge learnt to make 12 monthly menus which will then give me a formula for which foods need to be grown, bought and stored. I am sure this is what the pioneers did. How many days can you live without going to a store?
