I am living life dangerously - I have changed a canning recipe!! (insert dramatic music here)
There is a recipe for Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate in the Ball Book of Canning that I wanted to try. But I never seem have enough strawberries and lemons to try it out. I found a 3-pound bag of LIMES at the store that was affordable, so I made Cherry Limeade Concentrate instead. It is cherry season after all, and not strawberry season. I made a partial batch to try it out and it is fabulous! I will be making a full batch and canning it for myself.

(Sorry, meant to put this on the canning thread.)

I can't believe that I cannot find Medium Green Enchilada sauce in any of the stores around here. One store I went to has a hole where it should be, but that space has been empty for a month. I stopped at a different store, and they don't even have a space for Medium Green Enchilada sauce. They only had one choice for a store brand, mild sauce. DH likes the sauce in his breakfast burritos besides the obvious enchilada use.
Just finding weird objects sold out.

All fencing is out of sight! $$$$. 😢. Lot of patching vice full replacement here. I see more hot wire will happen to HELP keep the animals off what's there. I'm going to look at rolled hay today....another couple grand to spend. 🤷🙄😩 Gotta have. Money saved to buy but, costs are higher and I do understand that.

Gardeners -- most of us -- get or save your seed!! A lot of sites are sold out on popular varieties, even at higher prices. I just bought any I thought low/old in hand. Bought a couple sleeves of canning lids this Spring. Good through 2023 I'm sure! Feels good. Prepared.
