Came into the living room to find this...⁣

I mean, who doesn’t like cozying up by the fire on a cool, grey day in quarantine?

🥬 Victory gardens first became popular during WW1 and WW2 when citizens were asked to grow gardens at home to feed themselves so that commercially grown food could be sent to troops and allies fighting overseas.⁣

Today the victory garden is seeing a resurgence as more and more people are realizing the importance of securing their own food source as we’ve already begun to face supply chain interruptions and empty grocery store shelves thanks to the current pandemic that shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.⁣

So, what’s the difference between a regular home garden and a victory garden? It’s all in the crops you plant and planning your garden for maximum food production.⁣

I’ve never been happier to have learned how to can and preserve food than I am right now.⁣

Knowing how to can my own food not only means that I and my family are more self-sufficient and can preserve the fruits and vegetables we grow right in our own home garden, but it means that we can free up resources at the grocery store for other people at this time.⁣

When I went to the store to do our final stock up last week, I debated buying pasta sauce. But I knew I still had 9 bags of frozen tomatoes from our garden last year that I could turn into sauce, so I left what was on the shelves for other people who need it more than we do.⁣

If you’ve never canned food at home before, there’s truly never been a better time to learn. You’re at home isolating anyway, why not pick up a useful new skill while you’re at it? ⁣

Even if you don’t grow your own food, knowing how to preserve it means you can buy the fresh stuff that no one else is buying, or preserve seasonal produce from farmers in your area if there are supply chain issues down the road.⁣

If you’re ready to learn this invaluable life skill, click the link in my bio and check out my beginner’s guide to water bath canning, or go to to learn more.⁣

Irony: Community has never been so important as it is now, in a time when we are all being asked to isolate ourselves from each other.⁣

Yesterday our neighbours invited us over to help them butcher a pig. We kept a safe social distance of course, but my husband helped butcher and I helped pack, and we filled their freezer. As a thank you, they sent us home with a gift box full of meat.⁣

We also get duck eggs from them, and we trade them veggies and seedlings and, um, medicinal herbs;)⁣

During a time like this when our borders are all being closed and our grocery stores are empty and even rationing basic supplies, it’s becoming more important than ever to work together in our individual communities and neighbourhoods. ⁣

We need to support each other, even if we have to stay at least a metre away from each other. And perhaps most importantly right now, we need to work together to ensure our local food supply and to become more self-reliant, not only as individuals but as communities too.⁣

Irony: I wrote a post about this topic a few months ago when we all still lived in the land of milk and honey. But it’s more relevant now than ever. I highly encourage everyone to read it and think about how you can support self-reliance in your own communities at this time.⁣

We are SO lucky to live in an area where food security and self-reliance are so important to so many members of our community. And we’re even luckier to have neighbours who live by these same values❤️⁣
