Hello!! I am a transplanted Missourian originally from Minnesota. Brrrrrrrrr! Now my husband, two stepdaughters, two dogs, three cats, two parakeets, one hundred chickens, nine ducks, and seven geese live in Hannibal, MO. Our neighbors love us at 5AM!!! LOL. We have forty acres of land in New London, MO and are building a small homestead there. We have one full acre of garden, eleven fruit trees and lots of wild berries and fruit. That's the reason I found this great site!!! I needed all the help I could get with canning. I'm sure we will be adding lots of good things and using many of the wonderful recipes found here. I sure do love this place!!
