For the past month or so I’ve been working hard “behind the scenes” on my very first home canning course, and I’m super pumped to announce that the doors to the 𝐘𝐞𝐬, 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐂𝐀𝐍! home canning course are officially open!⁣⁣⁣
If you've ever canned before, you probably know the indescribable feeling of standing back and staring at your jars of home-canned food. There's just something so satisfying about it; something comforting and so rewarding about knowing that no matter what's happening in this crazy world, you're able to feed your family delicious, nutritious food that you prepared and put up with your own two hands.⁣⁣⁣
I want EVERYONE to experience that feeling, now more than ever.⁣⁣⁣
That’s why I knew this was the year I had to pass on all of the food preservation knowledge and canning skills that I've picked up over the past 5 that's helped me go from ZERO jars of food ever canned to HUNDREDS of home-canned jars of food on my pantry shelves each year.⁣⁣⁣
Over the course of 4 modules, I'll teach you everything you need to know to get started canning your own food at home SAFELY and easily so that come winter, you can won't need to rely as heavily on the grocery store. Instead, you can go grocery shopping from your very own food store in your pantry!⁣⁣⁣
Whether you've never canned before or you've done a little but are ready to take it to the next level, the 𝐘𝐞𝐬, 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐂𝐀𝐍! Home Canning Course was designed for you.⁣⁣⁣
Since I’m still adding lessons to the course as more food ripens and becomes ready for harvest, I'm currently offering this course for a whopping 50% off the regular price of $99, which means you'll pay just $49 for lifetime access, which includes any future updates or additions to the course.⁣⁣⁣

So if you're ready to get started canning up all of the abundance of summer before who knows what hits us in the winter, click the link in my bio or go to to enroll or learn more!⁣⁣⁣
No matter what lies ahead, there's one thing we know for sure: winter is coming, and you can't go wrong with a pantry full of home-canned food.

🥒 Well, it only took 4 days but all 50 lbs. of cucumbers have been turned into pickles and canned for the winter.⁣

25 jars of dills, 17 jars of sweet pickles and 3 jars of mustard pickles for something a little different!⁣

In truth, this will probably last us two years, which means I won’t have to make pickles next year and instead can focus on preserving something else! We also gift pickles at Christmas and for random hostess/housewarming gifts and to trade with our neighbours (I traded our neighbour a jar of pickles, a jar of strawberry jam and a dozen eggs for some cherries and beef jerky the other day!)⁣

In so many ways, canning is like currency; Like insurance for the future. Tuck a little away now and you’ll have food to eat, gifts to give and something tangible to trade in the future.⁣

If you want to learn how to can and preserve food so that you can put a little (or a lot!) away now for the future, click the link in my bio and get your name on the waitlist for my brand new home canning course, launching in just a couple days!⁣

Waitlist members will get access to exclusive advance enrolment and be eligible for my bonus video lesson and eBook on How to Make Herbal Infusions At Home, so you can preserve your herbs for food and medicine too!⁣

Click the link in my bio @thehouseandhomestead to save your spot and make this the year you stock your pantry to the hilt with homemade, home-canned, maybe even homegrown food!⁣

We’re finally home from our week-long summer vacation, and while I enjoyed being away, there’s nothing like sleeping somewhere else to make me miss home!⁣

The vacation itself tends to get all the glory, but for me, the best part is always coming home.⁣

Going away gives me the chance to step away and gain some perspective so that when it comes time to go home, I’m actually excited about it! I’m excited to come back to this life that we’ve created with intention. I’m excited to get back to my garden and my kitchen and my desk where I get to create a life I love with my own two hands.⁣

Sometimes we need that perspective that comes from a change of scenery and routine. I know that right now it’s harder than ever for so many people to get away as we’re being asked to stay home, but sometimes all it takes is a break from your every day routine to make you appreciate it. And if you don’t? Maybe it’s time to change it.⁣

The moment that I don’t love coming home or coming back to my life and routine is the moment I’ll know I need to change something about how I’m living. But right now, being back home is the best feeling in the world... Even better than walking through beautiful fields of yarrow with my daughter while we were away. And that was pretty good too:)⁣

The peas are late this year, probably because of the unusually cool weather we’ve been having. Although that’s meant that the plants are really healthy and now that they’re coming on, we’re about to get a bumper crop.⁣

Plus, I don’t really mind the wait. Because seriously, is there a vegetable on earth that produces prettier flowers than sugar snap peas??⁣

Don’t think so;)
