Of Crazy Growth in the garden and a new AA Canner......


So...... with warm and wet days everything is going CRAZY in the garden growing at double speed and it is not hard to get a sense of OVERWHELMED at times..... one of the disadvantages of a large garden... you turn your back for five minutes and BAM weeds have emerged where there were none and the tiny weeds DOUBLE in size..... the potatoes all need hilling, the tomatoes need pruning before they take over the planet and i need to harvest some parsley and summer squash.... Life is good and my tailbone is sore! 




Yes well i finally went ahead and bought the bright and shiny new All American Canner 921 as it is on special at the moment at  AMAZON  for a VERY good price. It arrived very quickly (3 days) and i can't WAIT to use it..... but I will give it a test run first to check the seal and my technique for closing it since it appears people sometimes have troubles with steam escaping out the rim..... I must say i am pretty excited about being able to do ANYTHING in cans now and not be limited to just acid based foods.
