And then There Were Nine...

Made a couple rounds of yogurt in the yogurt maker. So far, so good. This last round was a little runny, but I'll drain the whey to thicken it.

Started harvesting grapes and canned 7 quarts. Pickled a half liter of banana peppers in one of my Weck jars. I fermented our big cucumber into a half liter of dill pickles.

I purchased my first Weck jars with a Swagbucks Amazon giftcard and it worked great. I'm super excited to use them. If you would like to sign up for Swagbucks and earn free gift cards for stuff you do online (search, shop, etc.), feel free to support this blog and use my link.

I baked three loaves of whole wheat bread and two loaves of pumpkin bread with our own eggs. Mr. Greenie butchered and I assisted in plucking one of our bantams. This leaves us with 9 chickens, one of which is a rooster. We roasted the bantam with some vegetables from Food Not Bombs and then used the leftovers into chicken noodle soup. We ate the soup for two dinners so about $10 for raising the chicken and it made three meals.

Here's to more homemade, homegrown, and plastic-free harvest.
