2013..two additions for JuicyMaters!

I’ve mentioned here…often…that I think of my readers here at JuicyMaters as a sort of extended virtual family.  The comments here (not enough of them, by the way.  What’s wrong?  The cat have your collective tongues?) and the emails you folks send usually have a homey type feel to them, much like talking to family, friends, and neighbors…and I like that.  The best complement I have received about JuicyMaters in the almost 4 years since I started this website was by someone who said visiting here was like being part of a conversation among friends.

This was brought home to me…again…today while I was canning tomatos, my first canning of the season.   I know, I know…its awfully late to be starting my seasonal canning, but I had garden problems, and then there was the poor results, then there was…ah, never mind the excuses, I was just lazy! Anyway,
