Recycled freezer bags
Tomatoes have started coming in the CSA box. My own tomato plants are producing whoppers, especially my yellow low-acid tomatoes, which you see here. (I've also picked a couple of Brandywines that were size of softballs too, though.) All this combined with the bumper crop of blackberries means I'm freezing a lot. And that means that today I ran out of freezer bags AGAIN!
But it occurred to me that some food, like Trader Joe's sugar, comes in really nice ziplock bags. Why not just rinse them out and use those? Not only are they free, they're actually thicker than the bags you buy, which means you don't have to double them to avoid freezer burn.
No, they're not quite as big as the gallon bags I've been buying but that's OK. This is Smalltropolis after all.
