    Durgan, my Post name. I am a garden guru extraordinary, not bragging. It is fact. I keep a journal of my garden endeavors, cooking, and preservation. All is hands on experience tempered by garnered information. My growing area is just under half an acre in probably the best growing area in Canada. Enough is produced and preserved to be almost self sufficient in plant food for a year in the Zone 5 four month season. My preservation method is unique and is mainly slurry/juice pressure canning. But I use most methods for storage, root cellar, fermenting, refrigeration, freezing, dehydrating. I deal mostly in plant products. The overall object is to avoid commercial processed food as much as possible.

    This is my Journal. http://durgan.org/2011/ It is kept up to date as circumstances dictate. It is mostly annotated pictures with a concise explanation.

    Hi Durgan, we have a lot in common. My gardens are a total of 5 acres. To add to your list, I also freeze dry. Been canning over 50 years.

    I get four months of frost free growing, but such proliferation of growth that another six months would probably be excessive. What I don't grow is ready available within driving distance, at the peak of the growing season.

    You are sure active. What do you do with all your production?
