So anyway, I told you all of that so I could mention this.... canning hot peppers and salsa. Last fall was the first time I ever did any canning and the results were great, I am still putting banana peppers from my garden on my sandwiches and have plenty more to cover me until this years harvest is in. I started twice as many pepper plants this year, because they were so easy and so tasty! My family goes through salsa fast, so I also doubled my plum tomato starts this year, I'll have less heirlooms, but it's worth the sacrifice. I picked up a bunch of canning books and supplies off of the clearance rack at Lowe's over the winter, so I am planning ahead to preserve as much of the harvest as I can this year.
