This week I have started thinking about the things I will need to find to make this diet work for me. For those of you who didn’t read my last post, I am planning to follow a local (Saanich Peninsula) diet for a month and am spending August getting ready.
I went to the Peninsula Country Market on Saturday to check out what all the vendors are selling. The only thing I came home with was some broccoli, as most of what was available I also have growing in my garden. I will purchase some corn and freeze it in the next week or so, as I don’t grow corn. Last time I grew it I lost most of it to the raccoons, so I haven’t bothered again.
I have been canning tomatoes this week, and have lots ripening. I harvested my Norwegian beans and my Black beans are next. I also grew a bed of oats as an experiment and have about a gallon bucket of oats with their husks still on. The next step will be to remove the husks and figure out a way to chop or flatten the grains.
