We continue to be amazed at how much produce we are still picking from the garden.
Today Mary picked tomatellos.
These will be peeled, cooked and canned ready for use this winter as a salsa.
Lettuce is still plentiful.
These tomatoes will soon be picked and brought inside to ripen. Mary also picked several bowls of parsley to hang and dry indoors. Getting almost seven months of produce from our garden is remarkable for this climate zone. I think next year we will add another two raised garden beds as well as a small greenhouse. We do enjoy picking and eating our own vegetables.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we experience life off the grid and down the road.
