Hi I had the Privildge of growing up with an Italian GrandMother that was a super gardener. We grew 500 tomato plants and canned our own sauce, juice and paste. We also, "put up" jellies, relishes and pretty much, anything that could fit in a jar. When we got some money, Mom & Dad bought a freezer. Needless to say, we didn't starve...As I grew up and moved on my own (appt then condo) I had no room for a garden nor an extra freezer. No big deal...NOT ! ! ! I so missed my FRESH, NO Chemical, Knew What Was In It FOOD...I bought a home with a yard and have been canning and freezing on my own for 40 years. I wouldn't have it anyother way.
The link in the article... www.PickYourOwn.org is FABULOUS.
