Hello there! i know i've already made a post- but i'd still like to formally introduce myself :)

I live in mid-west Minnesota

i am a 23 yr old SAHM to a 3 yr old son. He is my everything :) he is beautiful and charming and CRAZY smart

We live with my boyfriend of almost 6 yrs (his father)

I love to garden (i'm starting heirloom tomatoes from seed this year!) and just started canning my own veggies last year and i love it!

I grew up with my parents raising all our veggies and meat and i remember summer and fall being busy helping mom can and freeze everything. i didn't understand then, but i do now! My dream is to eventually get our home in the country and be able to grow and can/freeze ALL our own veggies

I am looking forward to learning tips and recipes!

Hi, I'm 33 fixing to be 34Surprised! I have a seven year old step-daughter and have been married for 3 years. I have Fibromyalgia and working on SSD, which I hate. So I have always wanted to learn to can! I have the book, Canning for Dummies, it really is a good book. Canning is unforunatly a thing of the past. My grandmothers both passed when I was young and loved to can. I have allot of their coking items, they work better than the new gadgets today! So I'm here to learn, have fun, and help where I can!

Hi there:

I've been wanting to learn to can for quite a while now.  I heard about this group from Monique(above) and am excited that there is now a place to learn to can.  YEAH!!!

I'm also working on SSD due to FM and MS.  I've got 2 kids and a DH.  I'm 39, but will be 40 in about a month.

Looking forward to learning something new.

Hi, I'm Mandi a 26 year old mom to two kids.  I've been with my husband for 12 years, married to him for 7 1/2.

I've been canning for about 7 years.  I love it!  I really enjoy the whole process, but I really love seeing the jars lined up one the counter and hearing the pop of the lids.  It's a great feeling!

Neither of my grandmother's canned, nor did my mother.  It was just something I always wanted to do.  I feel like so many other things it is a dying art.

Quoting caednkat:

True, and it's such a shame as it is so much better for you than the canned foods you get from the store.
