I've been a gardener for years but since having chickens, I'm getting even more serious about it. Chickens are helping to turn me into a greenie, local food, sustainable living, organic as much as possible (yay chicken poo!) kind of gal. With this budding mindset it seems that it would be smart to start canning and preserving some of my extra veggies. I don't have a lot of space to grow veggies, but we do have a very long growing season, so it's sometimes possible to get two seasons into one. I haven't often done that because we only ate what we grew and gave away the extras. I'd like to change that this year. Please share some hints, tips, and great books and recipes with us. I just know there must be some people on this list who have this down already, others who are growing in their skills, and those like myself who would like to get started. Let's inspire one another!
