Well, once you have the pressure canner you can do green beans, spaghetti sauce, your own chicken, turkey and vegetable stocks, etc. You might be surprised. I haven't bought any chicken stock in like 2 years, it's pretty cool.
I've been canning chicken stock lately to use up carcasses in the freezer (like if I'm not in the mood to cut veggies then and there to let them simmer for a day or two). Once I have beasts out of the freezer I might be able to pack it away in the storage unit for a few months.
Well, if you're that excited, if/when we finally get our house here on track for closing, you can help find us a rental.
That isn't considered "big" at 1100sf with a "large, open" yard that's about enough room for 5 planters. Holy moly, those CL ads drive me nuts. That's not nearly enough room to include a (well, my) pantry and a place for the homeschool stuff to reside (I'm too messy to be able to do that at the dining table and clean it up for meals a few times a day, I know myself). And I have no qualms putting people to work digging/planting for me, I don't think. We'll see.
