We will need corn, peas, sweet potatoes, Roma green beans and yellow wax beans. Broccoli and cauliflower would be nice.
We have potatoes in the garden and if they make at least what they did last year we will have plenty.
E is growing extra canning corn for us.
Peas are coming on slowly, I will replant more late summer for fall crop
Roma beans and yellow wax beans are up but only about half came up. I hope they make enough for at least fresh eating though I would like to have some to can.
I do have 4 broccoli plants, not sure they are going to make as it's been slow. Four is not enough to have a lot for the freezer but it's better than none.
I could not find cauliflower plants. So that will have to be bought at store. There are a couple local farmer's markets that I will check later in the season.
I need blueberries. I hope next year our bushes will be producing enough for us but this year like M I will be buying what I need. I need pie filling, preserves and some frozen.
I would like to have black raspberries also for the same reasons of blueberries.
After reading Pioneer Woman's blog of stocking the pantry. I checked my condiments and baking stuff...
I am out of Arrowroot completely along with Mirin aka rice wine. Hubby was wondering how I pulled the last of the Arrowroot and not notice it. BECAUSE I store that in 2 places and figure it was in back up in the loft and it wasn't.
I am low on black olives, canned mushrooms, garlic stuffed green olives, pepperoncini peppers, pistachio pesto (the only one we eat), green chilis (I use with tomatoes instead of Rotel), roasted red peppers in jar, hot sauce, fish sauce, Worcestershire, and beef broth (the only broth I don't make myself as I don't have access to the bones to make it).
I have checked prices on line to figure out best price as we will be near several stores this week.
Dollar General/Aldi's/Save-A-Lot/ Walmart/Meijer's/ Kroger's and Amazon.
I need to refigure the finances since Hubby is closing the business plus going on Medicare that will come out of his SS. I think we will have the truck payment come out of that also... I got to play with the numbers as we see the finance guy Thursday.
Prayers for peace
