Basic Gardening and/or Canning Tips
Not sure whether you have basil or oregano or lemon balm growing in your yard? Or how to harvest them or save seeds from them? I've made so many mistakes over the years, learn from my mistakes and avoid them in your own garden.
Or is your pressure canner intimidating you? Well, don't let it, show it who's boss! Fill up your pantry with home-canned goodies, it's not as scary as it seems, you just need to jump in the first time and try it.
Training & Qualifications
I've been gardening in my chilly Zone 5 yard for years. I save my own heirloom seeds (to sell and use in my garden), start my own plants some of the time, work on feeding my family from my yard as I can. Friends and acquaintances have been known to ask me to identify plants in their gardens (while I'm not an expert, I can ID quite a few).
I've also been water bath canning and pressure canning for more than a few years. Specifically, I use a stainless Ball water bath canner, and a heavy All American 921. From making and canning homemade chicken stock to green beans to vanilla pears to applesauce to even dehydrating all manner of fruits.
