County agents will sometimes have free booklets and helpful advice. I also like to get books from the library first before I buy them. Good luck!

I second what they said!! Find a friend, too or a relative if close...also your county extension agent will have info, too. I really enjoy canning, not much of a green thumb. When I get settled, I will try container gardening...maybe...any specific questions I'm sure someone here has plenty of experience in all areas...as we are all interested. Love old cookbooks & especially old Home Ec books...

I got a lot of my books from Garage sales, yard sales or tag sales depending on where you live. I look for the really old cookbooks come of them have great sections on canning. Second hand book stores, etc...

I got the Ball canning book with my canned it has a lot of info, and recipes. It's called Ball Blue Book of Preserving. It was under $10. I didn't buy the kit with canner and book b/c it was cheaper to buy separate in my local K-Mart & Wal-Mart.

I can't change my past, but I can change my future!

With the rising costs of food, I'm starting a garden (In containers since I have so little space)this year. I plan on a few veggies and maybe strawberries. I am also interested in canning/preserving but don't know where to start. Any hints??
