The Great Food Massacre of 2009

Perhaps it is Karma. I’ve been bragging that we still have a freezer full of food from last year’s harvest, and to teach me modesty, the freezer pooched. Bag upon bag of spaghetti sauce (in various colours according to the time of year), cabbage rolls, casseroles, pesto, soups, curries, and frozen vegetables thawed into a sticky puddle and leaked out the bottom of the freezer. We dug an open pit grave in the backyard and buried our bounty unceremoniously. *sigh* Now I am REALLY ready for this season’s harvest. We will have to rethink our strategy and do more canning and less freezing this year, so we don’t have to rely on electrical devices to keep our food safe to eat.

Fortunately, the farmers market on Saturday had Leamington zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, etc already. Most of the veggies are probably hothouse grown, but I nevertheless envy Leamington for managing to be Zone 7 just down the road. That’s right, I have zone envy.

    Bummer. At least you buried it so it can compost and give back to the soil this year. Those are some lucky worms – it’s a gourmet jamboree.
