Four Ways to Manage an Over Abundance of Backyard Produce

  • Canning - A great way to preserve many types of produce.  Just ensure you use safe practices to prevent microorganisms from taking over your food.
  • Freezing - good for whole fruits, berries and vegetables. Either lay out on a tray for freezing before packaging or just add directly to a container and pop in the freezer.
  • Pickling - Is not just for cucumbers. Can be used to preserve zucchini, bell peppers, green beans, cauliflower and many more vegetables.
  • Drying - There are a few different ways to dry fresh herbs. You can hang them, or use a dehydrated or even your microwave.
  • Donating - Take your extra produce to your local food bank.  Some organizations will even come and pick it up.
