Saving Seeds and Eating Local

We try to save as much seed as we can, to keep the Heirloom seedlines continuing. Royal Purple Bush Bean seeds on the left, Blue Lake Bush Bean seeds on the right.
Homegrown Lettuce for our Dinner salad. The Tomatoes were bought from the farmer's market.
The foods that included home grown and local produce:
Chicken Veggie soup with "HG" Carrots & Zucchini
Sauteed Veggies with Ground Turkey (HG Zucchini, Carrots & Chinese Chives)
"HG" Bittermelon sauteed with "HG" Carrots, "HG" Zucchini and Sausages
Sun Oven cooked Chili with "HG" Peppers
Fried Rice which included "HG" Carrots, Zucchini & Green Onion.
Meatloaf which included "HG" Zucchini, Carrots, Peppers and home-baked bread crumbs
"HG" Mikan Mandarines, Guavas and wild Strawberries.
Homemade yogurt (soy, since we are allergic to dairy) with Frozen "HG" figs
gifted Peaches that have been frozen and Persimmon from the Hacienda Hts home
Home baked Bread for sandwiches and toast
*HG stands for Home Grown
