A super exciting thing happened to me and that was that I got to work with my daughter on a segment for the magazine, New American Homesteader. She was asked to contribute in the Canning and Preserving section and it ended up being a package deal, which was really fun for me.
It was sort of a dreamlike experience. I couldn't believe it when we were saying things like, "The magazine gave us a deadline for the photos" or "We need to sit down together and proof everything we've written before submitting it to the magazine"!
As usual, there are some really great articles in this magazine. It doesn't hit news-stands until tomorrow but I've had the privilege of having my copy for a couple weeks now. I've read it from cover to cover and loved all of it. You will too.
My daughter, Andrea, and I.
So, how about a give-away? I've got magazines to give to two lucky winners.
In order to be entered to win, just answer this question in the comment section below: Do you call it "canning", "preserving", or "putting up"? (Here in the South the old timers refer to it as puttin' up! I always have to think a second when they ask me "Did you get any tomaters put up yet"? )
I'll do a random drawing on Friday of this week! (Be sure an email address is attached to your name so I have a way to notify you if you win!)
If you don't win, I hope you will purchase the magazine!
P.S. One of the most fun things about working with my daughter on this project was watching her at work with her camera. She is such an inspiration for me in her photography. Notice the cover photo on the magazine... that is hers! (The very last page in the magazine is one of my photos!)
