You are killing me!! I want to start canning so bad but my garden was a total failure this year not producing anything like we usually get and there is no place around to buy bulk items like you seem to get such great deals on - I have to price to giant stores and see what I can do - you have been motivating me the last couple of weeks.

My garden didn't do well at all this year. I somehow have lucked out at the farm stands. Go to the farmers markets and ask for seconds. It's usually a lot cheaper to buy produced that way instead of the grocery store.
