      Your garden sounds really nice. I am jealous. About the canning/preserving thing, I think a good idea for you might be to start out with something super easy, like freezer jam. I went a U-pick strawberry place last weekend and made a big batch of strawberry jam. It turned out great! Now I am excited to try the “real” preserving method. Also, Alton Brown did an episode of Good Eats called “Urban Preservation” that is all about canning and preserving. Good stuff, and very informative!

      I’m so with you on the fleece need right now! I too have been waiting for warmer weather to play outside and mom is making me a screen frame (think sweater dryer) for it too. I’m almost afraid to hit the Spinning Loft this weekend–it’s like going to the grocery store when you are starving! oh no!

      O’s sleepy shorts are adorable! “O” is for Oyster?! That’s a dipthong, not a true /o/ sound! ;) Tough one!

      Great ‘cast, thank you again.

      Meghan,

      For canning, check out the Ball Blue Book of Canning. You can get it at WalMart near the canning items.

      Also check out Gardenweb.com and read the Harvest Forum. There is a lot of good information there. I’ve used several of the recipes from this site to make Crockpot Apple Butter, apple jam, banana jam, and strawberry jam.

      Several of the Cooperative Extension sites associated with colleges such as the University of Georgia or Mississippi State University.

      Read very carefully. If things are not properly canned, you can get botulism.

      Oops. One more thing and a question.

      There is also a book called Putting Food By. If you can find a copy, get it now and don’t wait.

      Also, I forget what you said you did with the Herbal hair oil. I have some and can’t remember what you do. I have very curly hair also.

      I am new to the whole podcast thing, so when someone told me about yours, I clicked the link. Have never heard a podcast, not sure how to.

      BUT! I saw your topic that it “pays not to mulch” and my inner gardener went WHAT?!?! Where are you gardening that it would pay not to mulch? Eden? Because you would have to be under God’s total protection or any other divine intervention to think it’s better NOT to mulch. I got a real education the year we decided not to mulch our garden. And the education was how many cuss words I could mutter under my breath while I spent HOURS weeding. And watering. And more hours weeding. Mulching is the one thing I would advise any gardener to do. And if you want proof take a look at my projects page on Ravelry. Pics of my garden are there. WITH mulch. Ravelry name MaddieMcEwan

      Meghan, I had to laugh out loud when you spoke about Owen’s Letter O and your “Huh?” moment. Christmas before last, my 7-year-old, Hunter, brought home a, well, a thing. I wasn’t sure what the heck it was. My blog post about it is here; I had to document it because I believe it was my single biggest DUH moment to date.

      Yeah, when you have a free minute, read it and feel all smart compared to my absolute stupidity. Sometimes I am SO blonde.
