Pressure Canner Day 1

I got a great deal on some fresh sweet corn from a friend. I was supposed to get 5 dozen ears but by my count it's closer to 8 dozen. I spent an evening shucking and washing them then borrowed a pressure canner from a friend so I could can the corn.

I sliced the corn off the cob and loosely packed it into pint and quart jars, covered with boiling water and into the pressure canner they went. I did 2 batches and ended up with 12 pints and 4 quarts with another 3 dozen ears still in the fridge. I am thrilled!!! I can't wait to put up food storage for the winter/rainy day.

I have ordered a pressure canner of my own and now have a LONG list of things I want to can. Peaches, pears, veggies, taters, salsa, bbq sauce, leftovers. Lmao I just watched a video on YouTube about how you can can BUTTER!! I can't wait for it to go on sale so I can try!

Terra-Fresh - I was wrong

I apologize for the lack of updates. I've been battling many laptops issues and a killer fungus in my garden that destroyed my taters and is found extensive damage to my maters.

My last post I posted pictures of the spring onions that showed the difference in the onions that weren't treated with TF vs. the ones that were treated weekly with TF. I posted it prematurely though. While the one TF onion WAS larger than the regular spring onions it wasn't an accurate example of the TF onions.

THIS is the REAL size of the rest of the TF spring onions.
