    He got us a small chest freezer!

    Now I can freeze even more sweet corn next summer and we'll have room for it all and meat, and frozen blueberries and cherries and baked goods ... [​IMG]

    Congrats on your new freezer. I have one too and just love it. It's just the right size for my smallish garden. This year I was able to freeze green and yellow beans, corn, apple pie filling, blueberries, peaches, and zuchinni - not to mention my big Thanksgiving turkey. He was sitting in there until this morning. [​IMG]

    Congratulations on your new freezer. I love mine and I don't know what I would do without it. Between the garage refigerator and the one in the house, plus the chest freezer, we manage. I could still use more space at times.

    I'm so excited! Now next time I go to the dairy farm to get my cowshare milk and meat I'll have to stock up on meat!

    And when the meat market has chicken on special ... now where do I buy butcher paper? [​IMG]

    I asked for a chest freezer a few years ago for Christmas....my sister gave me a frozen bra! Happy to see your DH is more practical! I love freezing corn and applesauce too.

    I have to be careful when I leave for a few days. Last time I was gone for a longer period of time I came home to a

    6 ft. by 8 ft. walk-in freezer. He put it together himself, bless his heart. Now the garage sounds like it is ready for take-off. Lots of room for the frozen food (as well as the raw diet for our dogs).
    Did I mention how loud the motor is? Thrummm Thrummm Thrummm [​IMG]
    He had to use the Bobcat skid loader to lift the motor onto the ceiling of the freezer. It is nice and shiny. Oh, and it makes a lot of noise. Keeps the cats out of the garage though.....
    Has a light inside, easy to read controls---we've added a few steel shelves for ease of storage.
    It makes a lot of noise, sigh.........

    I couldn't live without mine. We bought the one with the dividers in it and it is the best thing I have ever bought! Can't wait to put up some deer meat and fresh veggies next spring.
