!!!! Giveaway !!!!

I have never done a give away before,so I thought I might try one! I am going to give away a cook book,but not just any cook book! This is a cook book for us raise it ourselves,homesteading kind of folks! It is  The Farmer's Wife Canning and Preserving Cookbook. 



It is full of all kinds of recipes on putting up our harvest! Plus it is all retro, full of cool old pictures and the recipes are all dated from around 1910 and onward.



It is also full of little articles that were written by canning ladies of the past!  This one below just cracks me up!



Even if you are an old pro at canning, this is a really cool cook book just because it has so much history in it. Also, anything that needed to be updated to modern safety standards has been done already in the book.
Plus, it has all the instructions needed for beginners! Oh ,and it is hard backed!



So how to enter...Just leave me a comment! I am not going to make you follow me....but I am a blogger and I love when folks link up to me so...if you do follow me you have all my blogger love! For extra entries..hmm lets say 5 extra entries just blog about my giveaway and say you did in 5 extra comments! Easy Peasy! The Drawing will be in two weeks, March13! Good Luck!

What a cool book! Just what us "do it yourselfers" need, now that all the old-timers aren't around to teach!

Hoping the freezing cold rain will pass soon so I can get back to working on my raised beds. I plan on growing bunches and bunches of things to can and i could really use a good cook book to help me do so.
Have fun with your first give away!

~My Canning Jar~

To some it's just a little jar,
To me it's so much more.
I have to go in search of these,
~From store, to store, to store.

I fill them up and give them free,
With fruits and so much more.
I wish that I could get them free,
~But canning jars don't grow on trees.

I've worked real hard to fill them up,
And it has been such fun.
`Twould be a special gift to me,
If returned when you are done.

Thank you for recycling.
