Monday Garden Club Giveaway

Get your gardening gloves and knee pads ready. It's time for another installment of Monday Garden Club.
The garden is slowly dying off and plans for next year are already being discussed. The (4 wheel drive) Gardener has been scouring the Internet for a used one bottom plow to pull behind the ATV. He is the real brains and muscle of the whole operation. He does all of the tilling and power tool related chores while I do the picking, cooking, freezing and canning of all of the vegetables. Which reminds me that I promised a giveaway for today.

Recently my family has expressed their love of preserved foods. I make pickles and I get special requests for the jalapeno dills. The salsa is always is hit but it's the peaches this year that have my mom and brother calling me saying that they have "dibs" on a pint. Since the peaches were delicious and especially bountiful this year, I am feeling generous and would love to offer up a preserved pint of peaches (say that three times fast) to one of my fabulous readers. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll choose a number randomly and announce the winner next Monday. The contest will be open until 11:59PM next Sunday night, October 4.

Disclaimer: I have no license to be selling any kind of food product but I can assure you that I take utmost care in making sure that the food I preserve is safe. I sterilize all of my jars and process the filled jars in a boiling hot water bath for the appropriate amount of time. By entering this contest you agree that I will not be held responsible for any illness caused by my canned peaches. Basically I don't want to get sued.

Lovely disclaimer! lol. That's actually a great idea! I've never canned anything, but I'd like to try next year.

Those peaches look insanely delicious. We are thinking of getting some fruit trees next year even if we won't see anything for a while. :)

The peaches look delicious.

Put me up for trying for a pint of peaches. I wouldn't miss this for anything. AND, if I do win, I think it would be occasion to meet somewhere in the middle and have an afternoon meet. ;)

Can a relative win :)

I need a reprieve from Ohio's dismal produce.

Did I mention how much I love peaches, especially the kind that have been stripped of their fuzzy coats?

Oh, I've always wanted to can something! I'll settle for winning a can of yours, though! Count me in!

Great idea! My garden looks so sad now with the cold weather...we just have a TON of apples weighing the tree down...
