  • I had a problem with my pressure canner this year not sealing. I tried everything I knew, rubbing a little vegetable oil on the seal, dampening, even turning off the canner letting it cool completely then starting the sealing process all over. Still, to no avail. Even a new seal didn’t do the trick.
    I then bought a new pressure canner. The next morning when I got ready to reprocess the entire batch they were all sealed. Yes, sealed from heating the canner twice until the water boiled and steam escaped (even though the canner did not form a seal).

  • I saw the strangest thing the other day:  A bona fide whirlwind?  
    I was taking water to the ewes and lambs mid-day and I looked up to see this swarm of plant material -and whatever else was in it- swirl around a viburnum.  
    It was hot out and only the slightest breeze was apparent.  
    Since I was by myself I had to comment to the sheep and the dogs, “Oh my gosh, look at that, that is so weird!”  

  • Every family begins with a marriage.
    Two weeks ago, my family got together in California to celebrate our parents’ marriage with a huge party for their 60th anniversary.
    It was a 50’s party, minus the poodle skirts and black leather jackets.
    My sister transformed her garage into a 50’s-style combination soda shoppe and hot rod garage, complete with a juke box in the corner playing classic oldies music.
