Baby, it’s cold outside

Baby, it’s cold outside

So now that we've eaten through most of last year's harvest and my poor empty mason jars are making a big cluttery mess of themselves I've had to find useful chores for them. One is holding dry goods in the pantry (like beans and hot cereal mixes)... another is protecting the newest garden plants from cold snaps. We were supposed to get down into the low 30's earlier this week at night. Can't have any of the green babies freezing to death! So I plunked mason jars upside down over them. Everyone came through fine. =) And while they're not nearly as lovely as the glass cloches you see in the fancy garden catalogs they perform the same task at a fraction of the cost! Plus they can be used for a multitude of other things. (Candle holder, drink cup, change jar, fly trap, etc... Though I prefer to use them for canning.) Photobucket Photobucket
