Just get out and do it.

Welcome to my blog, Garden for Your Life! This site will be mostly about my garden, but you can build one just like it in your back yard too. It can be bigger or smaller, just get out and do it. You can do it for fun. Your can do it for your health. You can do it for fresh food in these troubled times. The point is to get out and do it for whatever reason that you need.

Over time I will cover topics like canning and preserving your harvest, soil and beds, bugs, what to plant and when, and much more.

I've been working on this garden on mine and improving on it for over five years now. I will continue doing that for many more. You can too, just get out and do it.

Lets can some Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork.

Ok, here's something for my friends interested in learning about canning.  Your going to need canning jars, pints for this one.  A pressure cooker.  A pot to heat the lids. Tools of the trade.  And last but not least, something to can!  This time I'm making Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork, using a recipe from Allrecipe.com.   This makes 5-6 pints.  Here's the link.

Back into the pot it goes to soak up all that delicious juice!

After the pot cools, remove the lid and place on a table to cool.

Once cool, check to make sure the jar is sealed by pushing down on the tops.  If they click when pushed down, the jar didn't seal.  If not sealed, open it up and fix some sandwiches.
