You still get to eat your losses tho. Just a different taste and a variation in how much adult beverage needed to wash 'em down with..

Yep, me and my wife canned twice already and she's through with it, so looking at going to the canning plant now. Going to make a couple of calls in the morning and see if I can work something out.

Good looking produce tho GP especially the tomatoes. You can tell the soil of your whole garden is close to 'right' because all the okra is the same height. Mine always looked like each row was planted a week apart...sometimes 1/2 row at a time.

Looks good! Do you sell any of that or just put it up for yourself?

Thanks, wb. We can or freeze what we want and I give the rest to my children and other friends and relatives. Have sold some in the past, but to be worthwhile that takes a pretty good commitment in time and effort that I would rather invest in other endeavors.
