Canning season is here...
canning season block
cherries, strawberries, carrots, tomatoes, pickles and grapes!
At one time we had a grape arbor...
the grape jelly was fantastic!
A friend in Iowa served me fresh cherry pie years ago...
Can you imagine pitting cherries for canning?
I canned carrots ONCE!
For some reason they unsealed
and I ended up throwing away dozens of jars...
Grandma Bertha's recipe for tomato juice is the only one our family uses.
It's also her recipe that I use for dill pickles.

Have you seen any sweet corn vendors yet?
The crops here in central South Dakota are looking great...
You can't be a wanna-be farm girl
without doing a little canning...
or quilt making!
