    I started a comment on this wonderful creation and it became so lengthy I changed it to a narrative called "Canning Days Back Home".... I'll post the results in a couple of days.... Thanks for the inspiration..... Jake

    Oh I miss those beautiful cans on my shelves, but with just my self to eat them I don't bother. Everything except my jellies goes in the freezer. I loved your poem though. Congratulations. love, Joyce

    Great write Donna. Your poem draws so succinctly the every day things that one can relate to my friend. I loved it.

    I do grow my own garden, but I have never attempted canning, yet. I enjoyed this poem very much, Donna. I liked the bounty of colors that you described here. Great work! Congratulations on your win!...Thank you for the nice comments.
