How’s that backyard crop of tomatoes doing? If those little gems you labored so hard over are just as tasty as you hoped, then you’re probably already lamenting the coming end of the growing season. Thankfully, there are ways you can preserve the bounty of your harvest into the winter. On Saturday, Aug. 11, the Gutierrez-Hubbell House hosts the first in its fall series of Backyard Farming Classes. From 9am to noon, participants learn all about cooking and preserving with the sun—how to cook with a solar oven and how to dehydrate foods in the sun. This event is free but RSVP is required—visit berco.gov or call 505-314-0398 to register.
