Year 1 Gardening Goal: Freeze enough greens to be able to eat them once a week, every week, until its time to grow them again in the spring. Having food in the freezer feels so good. Its like money in the bank, but yummier. Scoot on over meat, collards and kale are ready to claim some freezer space.
Hello future dinner!
I meant the frozen collards. Not the caterpillar. The plants were covered in those little guys. I tried to get as many into the compost bag as I could, but many a caterpillar ended up in my sink.
How is one ever to be completely sure they all washed into the sink before making it into the freezer? Well, two happened to float to the top while being boiled. So that helps. But really really sure? I suppose one can’t be. Frozen collard caterpillar stew, anyone?
Happy fall gardening!
