Praise the Lord for cute little old G-ma's who don't can anymore!

I hit the jackpot this weekend at yard sales! I found a ton of stuff, but I was most excited about the 104 canning jars, ginormous bag of rings and 3 pots I found! YEAH!!!
(That gives me at least 250+ jars & 4 pots to work with this season)I figure in my pregnant state, 250 will be enough this year, or if not, I'll just have to let it go!)
My main focus will be on pears, beans & salsa, but I'll want to do a few more peaches, applesauce, jam & pizza sauce. We'll see how it all goes! My luck I'll go into early labor out in the church orchard, up on a ladder and then complain to my Dr. "But I can't have the baby yet, my pears aren't done and I still have 4 bushels of apples waiting for me!"

well if you find more jars, i need some. i can't afford to buy them all new. i can pay you back if you find a great deal.
