Veg Club for Sept: Storing your Harvest in the Pantry, Garden, Fridge, Freezer, even Garage

Whether you grow them or buy them, you can keep many crops for weeks to months if they’re well stored. We’ll talk about how to protect fresh crops (even in the garden), as well as how to cure and store harvested ones like squash, and preserve others in the fridge, freezer, and pantry so you can eat local, organic produce all winter.  If we have time, we’ll talk a little seed-saving, as well. Don’t let that harvest go to waste. Summer plum cake in January? Yum!
