Domergirl I am so jealous of your tomatoes! I have picked TWO from about 10 plants so far!!
Powdery mildew is totally taking over my squash & pumpkins,I've tried many different remedies,to no avail. The price of such a cool,wet June & July,I guess.

AFter you filled up your jars did you take the bubble wand around all sides? It is important to do that even when inside the jar is mostly liquid. Mine probably reduces down to almost 1/2" but not always.

I've been making tomato relish and churning pickles and making ice box pickles....oh and lest I forget my son planted masses of hot peppers so I am making pepper sauce as well.....this on top of the peas and butterbeans and okra and squash.

I paid 45.00 for 150 ears of corn, does that sound like a good deal? He actually gave me a bit over 200 ears in case some were not so great. I got a good cutting off and will have corn to last all winter.

That is a little higher than we are paying in Indiana at 3 bucks per dozen usually 13-15 ears. Did you freeze or can your corn?

Do you take a clear thin plastic thing inside your jars to release air bubbles with? That is a bubble wand.

Nope.. air bubbles are included. Your mileage may vary!
