So as I was weeding the garden this week I discovered something growing that could pose a serious danger, not only to me, but Caveman especially.
I'm open to any tips or tricks you may have!
*This was an unfinished post from last year, but I felt it was worth finishing. I have Goomba working on a post about her experiences helping out on the farm.
And yet another reason to love the farmer’s market
It was a lovely morning, considering 24 hrs prior the meteorologists, in all their scientific glory, had called for storms all day. The sun was shining in a beautiful clear sky, so we decided to risk venturing down to the Farmer’s Market.
And boy, oh boy, am I glad we did. After peering at all the delectable goodies the farmers market had to offer, we stopped to grab the fruits and veggies we needed. And what to my wondering eyes should appear? No, not a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer, it's only September, silly! No, it was a box of delicious red orbs labeled sauce tomatoes at a very reasonable price!
So, after a quick stop at the library, we took our goodies home, put Gummy Bear down for a nap and got to work prepping these gorgeous goodies for the canning process.
Here’s how we did it....
The dangers of home canning
OK. I know the titles sound all doom and gloom, but this is serious stuff. As much as I love canning, and want to encourage you try it, I also want you to be safe. Some things in life are worth taking a risk on, like the lotto, or a new friend, or possibly that dicey bungee jumping experience. Canning is not one of them.
