Let this be a place to brag, share recipes, new tips & techniques or just ask a question about your latest method of putting fruit & veggies in a good place until the cold winds blow. Pictures are the best form of bragging...so shine the light just right a let us take a look!

I will start off by asking a couple of dumb questions...(no comments on that please)...

Split peas - how do they get split - mechanically or just grow that way?

Watermelons - how in the heck do you pick a good one? I have thumped, slapped, looked for yellow bellies & brown pig tails & still come up with a so so one. What am I doing wrong? Has anybody froze watermelon for later use?

Pint & a half canning jars - bought some & still trying to get used to their tall shape....what is your take on them? Are they working out for you?

Steam canners - is anybody using them?

Quick pickling - would like some basic methods or recipes for quick pickling fruits & veggies.
