    Two upright freezers in the basement. (Both purchased used–really good deals!) One freezer is for fruit and vegetables, with some meat, the other is purely for meat. (And we have a generator for backup so we don’t lose anything in case of a power outage.) We just bought half a cow so the meat freezer is pretty busy now!

    Oh man…can we come and live at your house???!!! You’re well stocked for the winter already..it’s not going to matter how long the power is out or your roads are snowed over because you and your family will be just fine. You may have to send out CARE packages to the rest of us!!! I used to be ready for winter like that up in the mountains of BC but I haven’t quite got my hubby to do that down here…now that we’re on the farm we’ll have a big garden next year so hopefully I’ll be canning and freezing again. Now I have to stock up on jars etc…can’t wait! Good luck with your pumpkins! :hungry2:

    That’s a lot of pumpkin! I’ll bet those cushaw squash make good pies too!

    Do you ahve a cold storage place to keep them through the fall and winter? Freezing is a good alternative. I am slowly freezing my squash.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
