I’m in trouble. Big trouble. I have waaaaay too many canning (and glass) jars and absolutely no place to stack them. It’s getting so bad that my sister threatened me with donating them all away if I couldn’t find a home for them. Land sakes…I get no respect. Donating such gems to STRANGERS and possibly breaking up my collection? Never! My canning jars are so special to me and I may just end up using each one if and when I have to can up a mother load harvest. It has taken me years to acquire this valued collection. I am also so sure someone, somewhere, would be thrilled to inherit these beauties from me and care for them as I have.
The basement would be perfect but that is off limits as it is stacked to the gills with stuff (not mine!). No more space in the back pantry or in the kitchen cabinets. Maybe the garage; but it’s sooo dusty in there and it’s already filled with seeds, biodiesel making equipment and goats. Sigh, so what’s a canning girl to do?
My Facebook feed is filled with creative storage areas. Talk about a bad case of storage envy. Boy, do I have it! I know I shan’t covet; but boy, I am desirous of some proper storage.
Meanwhile, I advert my eyes to such temptation and wonder where on earth am I gonna store all my jars!
But, alas, these wise words come to mind.
