First batch of canned tomatoes…

This is the first time in three years we produced (deers and other creatures didn’t get, disease didn’t get, lack of water and too much heat) enough tomatoes to can. Before the season started we treated the garden to some mushroom compost, put a few less plants in and prayed. They are starting to come on like gangbusters so here is our first 8 quarts! The secret to fantastic winter chili!

Just discovered raccoons got the corn-shit!

    I am jealous that you have maters for canning already. But I am not jealous of the raccoon… yikes!

    I canned two different things last night that I am excited to try… Strawberry Margarita Jam and Apple Cinnamon Jelly. Was my first time canning jam or jelly. My jelly is still pretty watery in the far though… somewhere I read that this is normal… anyone have any ideas?
