FYI--It's Time to Stock Your Pantry from Nature's Abundance
Late summer/early fall is an excellent time to add to your food stores with food that is naturally available in many locales. I'm up in the Pacific Northwest for another week or so and was pleased to be able to drive down a country road and find all sorts of food just waiting to be harvested. Blackberries are ready now, apples will be ready in another month, pears are almost ready, wild huckleberries should be ready soon, and a variety of nuts will be available in the fall. Add to that the fact that u-pick and/or your own garden should be in full production mode right now and you have the opportunity to put up a wide variety of food that will come in very useful during the winter and early spring.
