Canning and other processes have been used by past generations to preserve food (meats, fruits, veggies, etc) since the dawn of mankind. Our parents and grandparents may have 'canned' or stored different items for the family at sometime in their lives. This blog is intended to take a step back into the future so that I can understand the processes my mothers and grandmothers followed so that they could bring their families a fresh taste of summer during the winter season. Enjoy!

Will these cooler temps ever leave us?? I was finally able to get my plants outside, and the forsythia is out, but my veggies and herbs are still pending. They haven't yet taken away the 'frost' warnings for us this year:-( So now they're in a transition planter trough. I take them out during the sunnier time slots in the afternoon, and bring them in at night. We've ordered a raised bed planter framework to use once the weather softens temps, so there will be ongoing photos and updates throughout May, and beyond.
Stay warm until the nip is out of the air.
