Yes! Your root crops are ready to harvest. Now what?
Whether you've been gardening a few years or if this is your first season, you want to make the most of the harvest you've worked so hard to grow!
And now more than ever in recent history, storing our garden's bounty has become even more important.
Even though you have the motivation to harvest at the right time and store what you don't eat fresh, you don't know how to get started.
The sheer task of learning it all seems overwhelming, not to mention the actual doing it...it almost seems like too much.
Let's face it -- there's nothing more frustrating than spending all your time and effort to grow your garden, only to realize you have no idea what to do with the extras when the harvest actually starts coming.
Maybe you've even tried gathering information figuring it all out yourself.
And yet, you're left with more questions than answers. Questions like...
When do I harvest when the crop is below ground and I can't see it?
What is curing and is it necessary?
Where should I store my root crops?
Other gardeners make it look easy. (Just one look at Instagram and you know what I'm talking about.) But for you, it's been anything but. You didn't have a grandma bring you into her garden and kitchen and show you how it's done. And the resources online and in books get overwhelming...fast.
You're not alone. Most gardeners growing for food storage feel the same way in the beginning.
If only you had someone to show you how it's done. That would be a game changer for you. Just imagine:
confidently harvesting at the proper time because you know the signs to look for
watching how to curing, storing and freezing is done instead of only reading about it
learning the answers to questions you didn't know to ask
And what if there's a way to make it doable for you -- and maybe even...FUN?
Hello! I'm Jill!
And I want to help you confidently harvest and preserve the garden you worked so hard to grow.
My first year as a gardener, I dove into food preservation, because my goal was to grow food for my family. But I soon learned how much I missed by not having had my grandmother or mother teach me how to do those things.
I did a few important things right, though. I followed recipes tested for safety. I spent hours in research -- research that paid off. I jumped in and learned by doing.
But all the while, I wished I had someone SHOW me how it was done.
Someone to explain to me the "whys" behind the recipes.
Sure, I still had good results -- enough to keep doing it -- but...
I would have saved myself time, money, and many pounds of spoiled food if I could have watched and learned from someone who had been doing it for years.
Have you ever had these questions?
When is the best time to harvest a particular root vegetable?
Do I wash them off first, or not?
Do I refrigerate it, or not?
Which crops need curing, and what does that even mean?
How do I prepare a root crop for storage?
If I want to start preserving long-term, how do I get started with basic recipes?
What are my options for curing, storing and freezing?
If yes, then consider what's possible...
Imagine trading your uncertainty for the confidence and skills you need to pick, prep, preserve, & store the root crops you've worked so hard for.
Here's what that would look like...
Know WHEN to harvest ...because picking too early or too late can impact the quality of your fresh or preserved product.
Know WHETHER to wash immediately ...because with some crops, washing actually will promote faster spoilage
Know WHERE to store (refrigerator or counter...or somewhere else?) ...so that you can keep the product fresh longer, whether you plan to preserve or not
Decide whether to cure and store or freeze ...depending on the crop and what you want the final product to be
Watch step by step ...and follow along so you know precisely what to do
Begin with basic recipes ...so you don't get overwhelmed but can still stock your pantry with staples
Every video and lesson is packed full of vital information to get you started right, every step of the way. -Becky
