Re: Balancing Being Green and Being Minimalist

So, regarding the canning supplies - I built a shelf in my shed outside to store the canning supplies!!!!!! This really helps because I just put my huge canning pots and equipment and more than 6 dozen empty jars outside! That freed up a lot of room. Now I have more room to organize the jars that are still full in the house.

If your wondering.....yes I do need that many jars. I think I have about 11-12 dozen total. Maybe more< and I still want to buy MORE....... but I have a huge garden and I can a lot. Last summer I canned 16 jars of enchilada sauce, and 16 jars of marinara, plus countless diced tomatoes.....you get the idea. I'm working towards being totally self-sufficient on my own tomato products.
