Mmmm...... concord grape jam sounds delicious. It seems like you found a hobby to share with the Mrs. That is sweet.
The Funny thing is we have been doing this every year for 18 years. Been married for 21 but didnt learn for the first three of them. Its a very enjoyable hobby for us and were teaching our children a valuable life skill.

Wow, that's a lot of work. Don't you have a deep freezer?
Yes we do but its full of Peaches we froze, and meats. We also are getting ready to make packets of frozen vegetables that will take up the rest of the room. Besides I like the flavor of the canned tomatoes.

u guys are eating good
Not really eating good, just eating good stuff. We are preparing for the winter months making it so I dont have to go and buy allot of stuff when we are barely getting by. Many meals can be prepared without ever having to leave the home. I love being somewhat self sufficient, If I could only afford the land I would have a farm no problem. :)

we could be snowed in for days,
no water, no power, no heat
and no one coming to help.
