Mentioned on Facebook

Reader Linda in SoCal alerted me to the fact that the Tattler canning lid folks had mentioned my Canning Peaches post on their Facebook page.

I'm not on Facebook (and have no interest in signing up) so I figured I wouldn't be able to see the posting. However I found to my delight I could view it even without being signed up.

For a little while, at least. After awhile an imperious blue screen came up with the ominous proclamation that I need to log in before I can view any more. Glad I got those screen shots when I did.

Thanks for letting me know, Linda!


  1. Thou art famous and rightly so, dear canning maven!

  3. As of this morning, the post had 31 likes!

  4. Just curious Patrice, did they get or require your permission to reprint your excellent peach canning article?
    When is the wheat threshing and winnowing taking place?

    1. I'm one of Tattler's biggest fans. Whenever I put up a canning post which shows their lids, I routinely send them a link. They're advertisers on this blog as well, and they're some of the nicest folks I've ever met (I met Brad Steig at the Preparedness Expo in Colorado last May). So I sent them the link to the peach post, and that's how they got it. I didn't know they were going to put it up on Facebook, but I don't mind at all!

      We haven't threshed the wheat yet (we're in the throes of the busy season with our woodcraft business) but I may play around with it a bit this upcoming weekend.

  5. i am very glad that you dont mind things being shared on facebook..there are many of your articles that i share on facebook with my friends and they always get positive results from those friends who read them and some of my friends liked the articles so much that they go online and check out this blog quite often. :) poor thor! i hope that you get his problem resolved soon..having those quills stuck in him cant feel very good at all.

  6. I'm glad they mentioned your blog. It is good to see their product being used in real kitchens, by serious canners. I bet those peaches are going to taste wonderful in the middle of winter.
