Throughout the growing season, there are periods of shortage and abundance of foods, making preservation an essential part of life. Assist the gardeners in picking the freshest and plumpest garden vegetables including peppers, cucumbers, beets, onions, cabbage and other heirloom varieties, all traditionally found in Thomas Meighen's garden.
Then head inside the kitchen as interpreters demonstrate various 19th-century food preservation techniques, including ways to preserve meats, vegetables and fruits, and employing sugar, vinegar, salt and alcohol as preservatives. Preserving demonstrations will depend on available produce.
