We also have started preparing for winter. It will be here in Alaska before we know it. The salmonberries are ripe and ready for picking and we have gone out the last 2 days to harvest them. I put as ton up in the freezer and attempted to can for the first time tonight. I will let you know how that goes. LOL. A is in love with berry picking! She is asking to go again tomorrow.
The first blueberries of the season are out too! They were just a little tart. I can't wait till they are ready for picking. The island is full of food! I am trying to put up enough to last us all winter.
As I said in my previous post. I really feel a change in myself. I am being drawn to a simpler life. Homeschooling my child, reducing our dependence on material things, and becoming more self sustainable. I am praying for Gods guidance in this new journey and thanking him for the blessings of a new job for my husband and an amazing place to live.
