Preserving the Harvest

I spent this evening preparing some garden goodies for consumption this winter. We are constantly striving for a more self-sustainable life, so growing what we eat and eating what we grow is a cornerstone to everyday life for us. We aren't always perfect so sometimes things go to waste, and I don't take nearly the notes I should. Such is life! I thought it might be fun to document my preparation for canning tomorrow.

Here is the prep table for tomatillo and tomato roasting. All the implements and tools required are present (haha! Just saying that because my cell phone and beer are right there!)
