Postgrad on a Budget
Well, now it’s the end of summer, and I have no food to bum off of the farm. So being the poor postgrad kid that I am, I get to figure out how I’m going to survive another winter without all the free food! If anyone reading this has tips, tricks, suggestions, recipes, etc., they would be greatly appreciated.
Keep in mind I live in a very small apartment, so I could not can produce from the farm because I have no room for it; I have very limited freezer space that I have already stocked with as much as I think I can without fully irritating my roomie. And I’m sorry, I refuse the typical college diet of ramen noodles/mac and cheese. I just can’t, and won’t, do it.
I will definitely be taking advantage of the bacon my father will be making. At least I sure hope he gives me some. Bacon is definitely a staple in my diet. I should write a whole post about bacon and how important it is. Not just any bacon – I’m talkin’ the good stuff. Uncured is the best. But let’s be honest, most all bacon is awesome. Yea, I’ll write a whole post about it and rant about how healthy bacon is. Oh, I’ve done the research.
Anyway, I gotta figure something out because I won’t eat crappy food. I really cannot wait for the day to have the space for a garden, livestock and a greenhouse. Ideally, I’ll never have to go to the store again.
On another note, has anyone ever planted Lambkin melons? Because we did this year and I cannot get enough of them. We did a late planting of melons galore (cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew). But this Lambkin … The first time we ate some, the other farmhand said he literally wanted to turn around and hug me it was so good. And it is that good.
Melon and bacon. Yep. That’s what I’ve been eating. Please help.
