Bonnie's parents lived on this homestead, and her mother planted grapes, a cherry tree, asparagus and rhubarb, and fed her large family from a big garden.
I took some pictures of their "cave", a root cellar containing shelves full of their hard work. They tried a number of new recipes this year.
Here are some photos...
The shelves above contain things like pickle relish, grape jam from their vines, cherry jam from their cherry tree, and other jams and jellies.
These shelves contain green beans, meat, V8 -style juice on the left, potatoes and pickles on the right.
