  1. You go girl! I wish I could stop over and get a lesson about canning . My green friend of the week Elizabeth gave me awesome instructions, but I need someone who knows what they’re doing to lead me through the process. Anyway, it sounds like you are staying focused and accomplishing a lot this summer. I’m looking forward to hearing more!
