The Canning was successful


It's a lot of preparation and time to do "Canning" but when you have the work completed and in front of you it is very rewarding..It seems to me everyone these days are thinking "Green" and doing all the things to save their own personal economy.
Prserving food isn't something new...we all just went about it in different ways...Some never bought unless it's on sale...(I only stock up with things I use)...
Some buy "just because it was on sale"...That ends up not being a bargain to me..but we all have an opinion about that...
I don't like running to the store...that temps me to buy something I can do without, especially these days ...and I try to eat before I go shopping..when I'm hungry I shop like crazy...my best shopping is done with my list...sometimes I run into something I forgot or there is a sale on an item I use a lot...then there I go :o)...but most times I can go without certain items ...until next shopping trip if my stock is in good shape. How did I get here talking about canning? Older ones do rattle off ....:o)

Nicely done with the canning! I don't like to shop one bit. I always think of all the more fun things I could be doing. That being said, I am thankful to be able to buy the things we need even if it isn't my favorite pastime.

Looks like quite a bounty, Ginny. :) I always try to eat before shopping and follow a list too. If I go when I'm hungry and don't bother to make a list first, I end up buying all sorts of things I could have done without.
