Oh, Lucy, I'm home
After jamming another four bags of green beans and wax beans into the freezer last week, I decided that like it or not, I had to clean out the deep freeze. There was no place else to go with all the produce my garden is producing.
I pulled everything out, clear to the bottom of the chest freezer and when I got to the bottom, I was kind of over whelmed. The containers dated 2010 I could keep or take. What’s two years at twenty degrees Fahrenheit? When I read the number “97” on one of the bags of strawberries, I finally had to admit defeat. Honestly I cleaned out the freezer within the last year or two. The frost wasn’t even built up that much. Where did this stuff come from and why did it keep crawling back into my freezer?
I needed reinforcements. “Honey,” I called up the stairs, “can you come down here.”
The hubby took one look at the mess I had made, at the various plastic freezer boxes and Ziploc baggies and announced, “Lucy, you got some 'splainin' to do!”
You’d think I had red hair or something. No, and I’m not blond either. My little Ricky Ricardo is just a pill. But he makes me laugh and lovingly deals with every mess I get in to. He told me in no uncertain terms that anything with a date of 2010 or older had to go, as well as anything with an inch of frost on it. What a guy, huh? I know, I never would have figured that out on my own
I think most of this is good.
You really think this should all get pitched? But strawberries and blueberries are so good for you.
. There really ended up being a lot more room than this picture seems to show. Lots of room for beans!
