Plain brown boxes filling the bed of a F150
Larry called from work the other day and asked (with just a tad of sarcasm) could I use more canning jars? Well, DUH!! Thanks for asking but you know the answer to that one!
Seems one of the guys that works for him (& his wife) are clearing out all the canning jars they have. Calling it quits on canning. Could I use them? He would bring them in tomorrow.
OK, I’m thinking if they were willing to pass on jars it meant maybe a dozen….
The next day Mr. Fix-It comes down the drive way (in the middle of the day) in a truck that wasn’t his just a grinning & waved me over to the back end. It was LOADED. I nearly wet my pants. Seriously, I had to run inside to potty.
On the way back out I grabbed the camera.
This is what was left in the truck
. He’d already unloaded these
Quart, pint, half pint and the tiny quarter pints for gifting. I’ve yet to have a chance to go through them all
Looks like I’ll have plenty of jars for apple sauce next week!
And, passing a few filled jars back as a thank you.
No question we need to build more shelves in the basement
Have a wonderful weekend
