    ME ME ME! My package just arrived and I am going to open it once I am off the computer. I love gardening and preserving my produce, so this is an awesome party for me.

    oh, yer gonna LUV the box!

    I've been wanting to learn to can for a long time and my gf is coming down from Maine to help demonstrate. I am looking forward to canning my own salsa with FREE tomatoes from her garden this summer. :)

    I'm thinkin by the end of summer, I'll be a canning fool!

    Me! :woohoo:

    I made homemade jelly/syrup from the wild blackberries and black raspberries that grow in our fence row. What a mess that was. I used a huge pot for making lobsters :lmao: put a towel on the bottom to keep the jars from burning and used the wrong end of wire tongs to pull them out. The metal side kept slipping. :rotfl2: What a sight that must have been.

    I am so looking forward to doing it the right way. :yay:
