Suprise find in the freezer

Post  johnp on 4/16/2016, 8:28 am

Yesterday morning I made pancakes for the first time in years ( had some leftover buttermilk that I couldn't waste). Really great but had leftover batter. So I cooked the rest and froze them for later. As I was looking for a place to put them in the kitchen frig. I found a quart of tomato juice from last fall. I thought I had finished all that I had made last fall so this find is a big surprise. Had some this morning and you suddenly remember why we have all these plants under lights!

Taste of summer, snowing hard since the rain turned to snow about 6:00 AM. Temperatures about 35 degrees. I can see the very tops of my onion sets still. TV quit about 9:30 this morning (sat. dish) and since I can't lift over 10 pounds I can't haul the ladder out to remove it. This is longest period of continuous moisture that I have ever seen for this area. We started  about 10:30 last night and still snowing hard at noon. We had about 0.30 inches at 6:00 AM when I removed the top of my rain gauge so I can measure the snow by bring it in and melting the snow. If the farmlands to the southeast are getting it also it could really be a boost to ending the drought.

A few months ago we found some vac packed heat sealed home frozen at minus 23 oC  broad beans from 2011 hiding in the bottom of our big 4 x 3 x 3 foot ex commercial ice cream & iced lollipop chest freezer .

 They tasted just as good as fresh out the garden broad beans .
