Hi! I just found this board. I have no idea if I'll fit in here but I thought I would give it a try :) I think I'm what you would call "Green in progess".

Hi! Welcome! I'm more in the "save the earth" campaign. lol. I like that using vinegar to clean means no bad chemicals are running down my drains. And I can enlist the kids to clean because vinegar is so harmless. :D

Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting to know you!

Welcome Colleen~ I think you'll fit right in with us! We have folks here who live green because that's how they were raised, some who have turned green over time and some who are starting out. We all love to share ideas and advice!

I'm new to canning too. Our garden wasn't as fruitful as we had hoped this year (long story) but I have put up a bunch of green beans and little bits of other things here and there. I have to admit, I'm still a little afraid that I'm going to do something wrong and poison our whole family. EEK! :@)

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you!

Colleen~ Do you happen to have a good recipe for strawberry jam? I have a bunch of strawberries that I want to preserve this weekend and give as little Christmas gifts for teachers and such.

Thanks!! I feel the same way about canning. In the back of my mind I keep thinking "what if I am doing it wrong?" DH has been canning with me and he keeps assuring me that everything will be fine but I still have that lingering thought too.
