sorry for the late reply - I've been offline for about 3 days. I moved out to the west coast (Seattle) in 1991, then moved to southern oregon in late 2000. I get back to MN occassionally, but not as often as I would like due to cost of airfare. I was back last June and will go back again in early 2014 for my grandmas 90th bday party.Thanks Doris for the info. I have been canning for years, I use to help my mom can. But it always good to know what you are doing, I do think of Botulism when I am canning, it is a scary thing. I try to be very careful when canning.
Tammy, I still hate weeding the garden. I try and get my kids to do it or my husband, LOL! I pay the kids a penny a weed. They lose interest pretty quick, but it keeps them out of trouble and its less I have to do ) Where are you now, if you aren't in MN anymore?
