One woman takes meal prep to the next level by preparing the annual Christmas dinner months in advance.
Gubba Homestead is a 23-year-old who lives near Seattle, Washington, and started cooking her Christmas meal in late summer.
The content creator told SWNS that she lives on a 30-acre farm where she can harvest vegetables in late summer — until a few days before the holidays.

“It’s my harvest season,” she said.
“I preserve everything (and) is ready to go.”
Homestead, who said she lives in a big city, can make Christmas dinner for free using this technique — instead of spending up to $500 like before, she said.
“It’s a free Christmas dinner – off my time,” she told SWNS.
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR YARD AND GARDEN FOR SPRING
Homestead went on to say that she left big cities after the pandemic — and taught herself how to grow her own fruits and vegetables to prepare for possible other future global disasters.
“I have apple trees, pear trees, peach trees, mandarin trees and cherry trees,” she listed. “I grow raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.”
In August, Homestead harvests vegetables like potatoes, carrots and corn to preserve.

In September, the content creator picks apples and prepares her apple pie filling.
In October, she collects and saves flowers, pine trees and branches to make fresh wreaths for the holiday season, she said.
And on Christmas Day, Homestead said she was making the preserves she had been working on for months.

The 23-year-old said the way she preserves her food varies — this includes, but is not limited to, canned and freeze-dried foods.
“It’s a free Christmas dinner, off my time.”
She told SWNS that her family really enjoys apple pie, so she makes sure to make this dessert at Christmas.
“I bake the apple pie filling, put it in a clear gel to preserve it for canning – (then) it’s ready to pour into the pie,” she said.
In addition to her food, Homestead said she also prepares her Christmas presents early by putting together baskets for friends and family using household items to fill with homemade jams and chutneys.

“I fill it with jams and chutneys, I have harvested some honey and I will also make dried meat,” she told SWNS.
All of these actions are intended to prove that things can be prepared in advance to make life easier — something Homestead said helps him prepare for any situation.
