Waiting For The Storm

Good morning! The sun is shining and the birds are playing in the big pear tree. Flitting back and forth from limb to limb, they look so cute! All plump and puffed up. I can hear the Rooster crowing in the back yard as he watches over the girls. The ice on the pool glitters in the sunshine. It so beautiful… The smell of coffee teases my nose. I love mornings like this.  It is so hard to believe how cold it is getting.  It was just in the upper 50’s and now I can see my breath.  They are calling for a chance of snow but from what I see no one believes the reports.  Too many reports of snow that never came to be make the farmer’s and ranchers very skeptical.  People still seem to be rushing to the store for the staple items just in case.  This is why it is always good to have some emergency food stored.  I am thankful that we can and preserve our harvests at the Cottage. 

Do you have an emergency plan for food in place?  Do you can?       

Would love to hear from you.  Let’s exchange ideas.  We have an orchard so we do lots of canning of the fruit and dehydrating.  We garden as well so we do our best to can, dry or freeze as much as possible.  We just ran out of tomatoes from last years garden but we still have lots of green beans.  We try to get a share of meat as well when we can so that we will have it on hand.  It saves money in the long run. 

Leave us a message in the comments below, we love to hear from you!
