Just get out and do it.

Welcome to my blog, Garden for Your Life! This site will be mostly about my garden, but you can build one just like it in your back yard too. It can be bigger or smaller, just get out and do it. You can do it for fun. Your can do it for your health. You can do it for fresh food in these troubled times. The point is to get out and do it for whatever reason that you need.

Over time I will cover topics like canning and preserving your harvest, soil and beds, bugs, what to plant and when, and much more.

I've been working on this garden on mine and improving on it for over five years now. I will continue doing that for many more. You can too, just get out and do it.

Lori's BBQ Chicken or Meatballs.

This is my wife's recipe for Bar-B-Que chicken or meatballs.  It's delish and I serve it over rice with the sauce on top.  She is canning some of it right now in quart jars for the pantry.  Here's the sauce recipe.

10-12 pounds of chicken thighs, boneless, skinless are better, or frozen meatballs.

2 cups soy sauce
2 cups sugar
2 cups ketchup
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp ginger

In a large bowl mix the soy, sugar, ketchup, garlic, ginger.  When the sugar is dissolved place in a large pot and add the chicken or meat balls.  Cook until done!

Serve over rice and spoon a little sauce over the rice.

If canning, 6 lbs of meatballs makes 6 quarts.  16 pounds of chicken thighs makes 10 quarts.  Place in pressure cooker for 90 minutes with 10 pounds PSI. 

In the pot cooking away.

Time to can it.

 YUM!  Cooling and then ready for the pantry!

With these noses a twitching it has full approval!

No thirty second rule in this house.  If it hits the floor it don't stand a chance with these hound dawgs!
