I decided to start a garden because I didn’t want to have to depend on the grocery store for my produce. I eat a lot of fruit and veggies and without a car, I can’t just get up and go to the store if I don’t have something. Also, produce is expensive. No joke. So I started a garden, but didn’t have much space to start.
Come Monday, my ghetto little garden will be moved to this area in the backyard:
Now that I have all this space, I will be able to plant even more stuff. My only concern is that I won’t be able to use the vegetables in time and they might go bad. So, this got me inspired to start canning. Here are some cool canning sites and tutorials that I found:
Preparing for canning season, from Old Fashioned Families
Home Canning 101, by Paula Deen
Ultimate Guide to Canning and Preserving, from Type-A Parent
Canning label templates, from TodaysMama
Apple butter recipe from Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy
Oh man. I am so excited to share all of my canning adventures with you! Do you have any tips, tutorials or recipes? Share them in the comments!
