There are certain things that one does
that are just right.
There is that feeling inside like
it's how it is supposed to be.
( Please ignore the messy little corner of sugars:?)
This past week,
I invested in a pressure canner.
This weekend, I canned...
one batch of green beans
and two batches of stewed tomatoes.
(It might not sound like much,
but all the laundry is done,
washed the living room curtains, etc...boring stuff)
I have to admit
I see those pictures of peoples pantry shelves
all lined with home canned jars,
and I am a wee bit jealous.
However, we must start somewhere.
So the above is where we are~
a combination of store bought and home canned.
I have more tomatoes,
but they were cooling on the counter.
I am hoping to get corn this week.
The other thing I have been doing
is dry oven canning.
The dehydrated veggies have been
hot oven canned and last nearly forever.
It's all a process, and every little step
we take around here
is towards a point of self-sufficiency.
We both appreciate the old ways.
Hold that thought,
we do like such things as showers & deodorant.
Not quite thaaaat old of ways.
We just feel the less dependent we are, the better.
Wait until I show you what Mr. LB has been up to.
Until next time,
