I like to can hamburger meat for quick meals and save on freezer space.. It averages out to a pound a pint.. little less than 2 lbs a quart..

I have had good luck vacuum sealing cereal this way. I've opened some, that had been sealed for a year. It was still fresh and tasted like I had just opened the box.

With the election insanity I’ve been doing what I now call “stress canning”😂 the other day 50 pounds of tomatoes turned into 7 quarts of tomato soup, and 7 quarts and 20 pints of tomato halves.😁

We are also struggling with clay. Last year our poor garden really struggled. We are hoping to add a lot of compost to the area and try again. I'd love to see what advise everyone has.

Have you checked with your local Ag agent? They should be able to help you.
