I've done it. It's almost a must for any gardener who wants to maximize their harvest.

The wife and I Grew and canned over 400 Qts of fruit and vegetables this year and are hoping to get over 600 Qts next year. At 50% or more savings over buying it in a store. Why not.

I can't tell if I'm dealing well with life these days or I just don't give a shit any more.

My grandmother used to do lots of canning. Her dill pickles were the best I ever ate. Those in your picture make my mouth water. I would do canning to preserve some of the food types that I eat, but I haven't found a recipe for canning tacos, hamburgers or pizza.

Mom and my sister canned about 200 qts of tomatoes, a bunch of tomato juice, a version of v-8 juice, green beans, pickle relish, chow-chow, dill pickles, sweet pickles and anything else they found in the garden. I'm just the person on the hoe. That makes me a hoe-er I guess.

The funny thing is I can buy canned tomatoes from a food vendor at the restaurant and they're cheaper and certainly a lot, lot less labor intensive. I can't taste the difference but mom and sis say home canned are much better. I call bullshit.........but I won't call it to them.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It's difficult only for the others.

It's the same when you are stupid
