I hope everyone is doing well. I sure miss my students coming and having fun in my kitchen. I know this has been hard . At first I was in shock that something like this could bring our country to its knees.
This has opened my eyes to how important preserving food and growing food is. I keep thinking of the next generation of preservers and growers and how necessary it is that I keep the knowledge going forward.
By doing our part staying home and having food on hand has been a blessing. Having a pantry full of jars and a freezer with meals and meats available. Not to mention a garden with a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit. I can say we have had many wonderful meals.
We have gotten a lot done around here. Lots of weed whacking and mowing to keep us safe from fires. Plus it looks pretty. We made a new garden bed. I have planted more this year that ever. I have volunteer plants coming out my ears. I have given away many.
With the country slowly reopening I’m asking myself when will All In A Jar reopen. I’m looking in July. I think it would be nice to have small private canning classes. That way you know the other students in class. I’m still working on this and if anyone has suggestions please let me know your thoughts.
Yes, I miss you, family and friends.
See you in class
