Picked up a case of pint-and-a-half canning jars. Also ferretted out who the new egg-layer is...it's one of the Barred Plymouth Rocks.
A freeze-dryer is on my "REALLY want it" list, but until the price comes down (a LOT) it's just not going to happen. So, until I can get one, it's freezing, canning, and dehydrating.
Nice! I would like to get a freeze dryer eventually, but can't afford it right now. Those things are expensive! Hopefully the price will come down as more are produced.

Spam post removed. This guy actually e-mailed me via the forum regarding his spam. WRONG move! If he does it again, he will be treated like any other spammer and given "the boot".
You all forgot to mention the cost of malpractice insurance. A friend of mine has a daughter who is doctor (family practitioner). She has to pay Forty THOUSAND dollars a year for malpractice insurance. :shock: I don't make half that much teaching! In other words, her insurance costs are TWICE my ann...
Oh, in my list of fall/winter planted veggies, I neglected to mention the cabbage family. (Since I'm allergic to them, I don't plant them.) That would include cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and kale.
