Wish this crop would have done better

If only I could grow more of this crop things would be a little eaiser around here. We use a lot of this and there never seems to be much left over to can, but every little bit helps. To can this crop, fill jars with product, no need to leave an inch head space on this one. The more you can get in there the better. No boiling water bath or pressure canner needed. Dig a hole in the ground and bury, be sure to mark the spot.

Just kidding, I would never part with my mason jars. haha!! That's what coffee cans are for.

Shoot...depending on how things go, the mason jars may very well be worth a more than that shiny copper looking stuff.

Btw, which grows better, silver colored or copper colored?

Coffee cans? Who can afford coffee? Just kiddin'. Warren's right about the jars -- we used to be able to pick up the blue Ball jars at the thrift store for next to they want $1.99 for one of 'em. Crazy -- glad we stocked up a few years ago. I like them much better than the new ones.

Cath, happy to be the joke of the day.

Warren, very true. Not sure which one would grow better, I can only get the cooper color. Seed is the hardest thing to find for me.

S Vandemore, welcome, I have seen the blue jars for up to 8 bucks at the flea market. Ya know folks just want 'em for pretties. Old jars are my fav.

Thanks for the comments on this goofy post.

When you figure out how to grow that crop, lemme know. I have two blue Ball jars in my kitchen, strictly for decoration. You know, me and canning...
