Joys of Canning with the Bounty from Your Garden
I have to admit that one of our goals this year was to be way ahead of the game but sadly we are not well at least to start some things from seeds. Here in Michigan we don't plant until Memorial Day so we can still go to the local nursery to purchase plants. We will still start green beans from seeds this year. When I can I try to do it do it in spurts as much as I can such as waiting til Saturday to can the tomatoes and work on it for several hours. Though this doesn't always work but is the most ideal situation for me. I have canned 15 jars of salsa in one day and that was very exhausted with all the steps involved in the process. How many have an all-day canning session? Or do you can as the crop is ready?
