I love Mason jars. I use them to store anything and everything: leftovers in the refrigerator, buttons and paperclips and little bits of ribbon, and dry staple foods.
PickYourOwn.org has a brief history of Mason jars and other brands of canning jars if you'd like to learn more.
We use pint Mason jars as our everyday drinking glasses. It not only justifies my collection, it also means we have enough jars for everyone who is visiting.
How do you use Mason jars, besides canning?
My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. You can follow me at:

It's no secret that I love ducks. We've had several over the years, along with a few geese, and I discovered that I enjoy the waterbirds even more than I like my chickens.

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:
- fresh hay in the barn
- leaves beginning to change color
- and falling to the ground to provide compost material
- cooler mornings
