This picture looks very much like my grandma Berger's basement pantry. She & grandpa Ralph always had a large garden & orchard. Summers were spent canning & putting up food for the winter. I especially remember canning green beans with my mom at our house. They would both make apple butter & chow chow. My grandparents had a large blackberry patch. It wasn't much fun picking the berries because of the thorns & chiggers, but it was wonderful eating blackberry cobbler!
Years ago we had a garden, we're talking about planting a garden again this spring. No, I won't be canning, but I think it will be great having fresh vegetables to eat & share with the neighbors.
I'll keep you posted on my menu planning & cooking. I'm anxious to see how long we can restrain from eating out! :0)
