    Getting ready for canning season

    I know it is a bit early, . . . but it was too cold for anything outside (never got above 0 at my place), . . . so we put in a whole bunch of new shelving, . . . re-arranged some of the old, . . . counting down the days till we are back in the canning business.

    The "L" shaped group were done a couple years back, . . . the flat group with the mirror in the middle were all done today.

    Not a professional job by any means, . . . but if it'll hold the jars and cans, . . . I'm not complaining.

    The mirror pulls back and there is a cabinet behind it, . . . it's full of spices and the like. The mirror came from my uncle's dairy farm from decades ago.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

    Pantry shelving alone shows you are a thinker.
    Self preservation is an asset most are clueless about.
    We know you have tools to protect your supplies.
    Good going.
    Cold here today too. Maybe it's time to neaten up the goodies in our pantry and take inventory.

    Re: Getting ready for canning season

    It was cold enough last night in MA, on the way home that my window wash fluid froze in the nozzles. Had to pull over into a gas station to buy a gallon to dump some on window and turn on the wiper to get rid of the salt so I could see. Luckily, I only had to do that once as the salt pretty much dried on the roads the rest of the way. Jeep thermometer read 6, but, a friend of mine said his was reading zero.

    It's not global warming any more, it's climate change now. That way everything can be claimed as causal.
    There were a lot worse places than Phu Bai and they weren't all in Viet Nam.
