Questions, Anyone?

Jamey and I have been asked to speak to one of the Sunday School classes at our church about our lifestyle and food choices. The contact folks from this class have given us some questions that they'd like us to answer.

Making Salsa with Grandma during her visit last summer

We will answer those, but were also wondering if there are other things we could share/explain that would be helpful to folks wanting to make some food changes. We thought you all might be able to help us out here. If you were able to ask us anything, what would you like to know?

Canned Peaches

Please leave a comment with your question/s by this Saturday (we speak on Sunday). Next week, we'll answer your questions, too. You can ask whatever you want. Certain questions, like what our baby names are, will not be answered. But, you can try. Now, ask away. If you want to. That really wasn't supposed to sound like an order.

  1. You know what I would like to know? How much to grow for a family of four...enough to eat for the season AND enough to preserve. I have NO idea how much to plant! And would eventually like to grow all of our own produce and fruits... Thanks!
    ps...will you let us know the baby's name after it's born? I'm so excited for you!

  2. I'd love to see your rough calculations of how much to plant, succession plantings, etc. Of course it would be nice if there were a clear guide somewhere (I use Jeavens, sort of, b/c we don't plant in rows), but I know each family is individual: we eat a lot of potatoes, canned tomatoes and chicken broth, so we might put up more of those than some. Maybe you could address what crops you grow (if any) through the winter, bartering/trading (b/c it's not so realistic or traditional that we all grow ALL our food, and crops do fail), and the tradeoff of living out of town (more potential driving) for more acreage to grow our own food.


Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
