Have fun canning! Our weather is cooler so at least it wouldn't be as hot while canning. I plan on eating a lot of tomatoes this week.

That is a lot of work! I tried canning once...it was like an episode from I love Lucy! I would love to know your tricks! For now, I'm just freezing my produce. Blessings!
