Yes, Young People Garden!

This time of year I talk to a lot of people about pea shellers and corn creamers.  Older people keep telling me how younger people don’t care about gardening anymore.

When I was a kid I watched a black and white 1950’s movie with Humphrey Bogart talking about how lazy young people are.  I think I’ve seen five or six dozen movies since extol that same thing.

I say all this because young people are buying corn creamers.  They’re buying pea shellers and other gardening equipment.  They’re interested in the latest canning techniques.

Maybe the reasons are different, but the results are the same.  Many people today are worried about GMO, and pesticides, and where food comes from.  The news is full of recalls from China and other countries.

Now people are gardening and canning for self-defense.

 

Need Help With Freezer Bags?

Frozen peas

Trying to wrestle with freezer bags can be a pain at times, especially when you are working with gallons of peas and other produce. We love having an extra set of “hands” in the kitchen. This baggie holder makes filling your gallon size bags with peas, beans, corn, pasta, nuts, and more a breeze. Use it as your extra set of hands and fill bags faster than ever with less mess.

We love this little baggie stand so much because it doesn’t matter what we need to put in our freezer bags, fresh produce, leftovers, pasta, snacks, soup, stock, meat… the list can go on and on. It holds up well and hasn’t let us down.

When you are ready to use it rotate the arms of the bag stand holder in an *X* shape to create a sturdy stance with the curved posts at the top. Fold over the top edge of a one-gallon storage bag to create a lip on the top edge of the bad. Put the storage bag in the middle of the baggie stand and slide the lip over the 4 upright posts. Fill your freezer bags with peas, beans, creamed corn, peppers, berries, pasta, snacks, soup, toys and more!
