Today is June 5, 2021. We have been listening to our friends and we are changing over to Shopify. Our website will be a lot easier to understand, navigate and purchase from. As we sat listening and looking at the update last Friday, we wondered why we had not done this sooner. I believe it will be up and running in about two more weeks.
We are going to dedicate this website to our doomsday information.
This is David's Garden Seeds® buy small batch packed food home page. It is a list of all the home-canned foods we have for sale.
We you come visit us, bring the jar and the band back and we will give you a $1.
As of 5-10-21, we will only sell in our store. Demand has been better than we thought. We are only producing enough for our store operations. The only exception to this is the strawberry preserve. We got carried away and made way to much of it. Actually, we had no clue how many jars we could get from a five gallon bucket of strawberries.
As the season progresses we hope, to have some fresh produce for sell as well.
Buy Pickled Eggs
These will last for years when kept in a cool place. Because of the process we use, we do not add preservatives and all the other stuff you find in foods today. The longer the product sits, the more the color will change. But the food will still be excellent.
We planted a lot of stuff this week for processing. We planted several colors of carrots and beets. Onions. Broccoli and Cauliflower. Some how we got garlic in. I put an order in several months ago and forgot about it. So we will be planting garlic as well. And we have a lot of other stuff to get planted for the seaso
All the products we have planted will be available as pickled and canned.
We received our commercial oven and vent hood today. We are still waiting on the three compartment sink.
(UPDATE: The sink arrived in a box with no packing. Needless to say it was damaged beyond repair. So we will have to order another one. Two more weeks.) Then we will be ready to apply for our license. When we are pickling, we do not need a license. But since we are canning, which involves high heat, then we have to have a license.(UPDATE: Cottage laws have changed considerably since we wrote this. We no longer have to have a permit but we paid the fee to have them come in and inspect us anyway.)
After two weeks the sink arrived. It was a miniature three compartment sink that our pots would not even fit in. After another two weeks the right sink arrived.
Our most recent achievement is we have received our license as a commercial food manufacturer. We can now make food for canning in our own facility.
For the spring of 2021, we have been hampered a bit by cool weather. Who would have though that in Texas we would be running into planting delays due to cooler weather? Even today, May 12, the high is only going to be 78. I am not complaining. It is quite nice.

nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
