The first indication that summer is here is the first large basket full of the day’s harvest. But you really know it’s summer when you pull out your canning pot and utensils for the first time! Unfortunately, this happens to be one of the busiest times of the year for me at work (fiscal year end), and I’m working many 12-14 hour days. But the harvest won’t wait, so I’ve had to get creative. First canning of 2014!
