Things are going well in our garden. I picked 4 5-gallon buckets stuffed full of swiss chard yesterday evening. Amounted to 11 quarts of cooked/canned yummies! One of the pictures will show the remains of the stems cut from the leaves.

Thursday, I hope to get in the garden early to pick a pile of lettuce to take to my dad and dad-in-law and other relatives over the Father's Day weekend. Next week, I'll need to work on canning some collard greens. Might even dig a few potatoes.

Your garden looks terrific. :thumbs:

I have never canned any sort of food. Is there anything special that you need to do?

I have a water bath canner and a pressure canner. Both are needed, depending on what you are canning. Other than that, you need lots of jars, rings, lids, and a good canning guide. There are lots of sources on the web. I lucked out on the pressure canner: got mine from MOM!!!! Saved me $200!!!!

The lack of weeds is the result of lots of pulling, and, I try to keep them down by using grass clippings from the yard, and, I have tried to space the rows so I can run my TroyBilt Horse down the rows once in awhile before the plants get to big. Other than that, I use a Mantis tiller where I can.

I've been under the weather the last couple of days (Yesterday was my birthday!!!), and we were out of town over the Father's Day weekend. I'm looking forward to getting back into the garden!!!
