    Canning Tomatoes - water bath or pressure canner

    That's my final comment on the subject, what works for one person, may not be accepted by another. My method has been used for decades so it's fine by me. If others feel it's necessary to pressure can, then go for it.

    Canning Tomatoes - water bath or pressure canner

    I had a pressure canner, used it several times but my cooktop is not suited for it. I use an electric waterbath canner now.

    Canning Tomatoes - water bath or pressure canner

    Tomatoes are high in acid so do not require pressure canning. Not sure if it makes a difference in shelf life but I just use water bath canner.

    Tips to reduce plastic greenhouse ‘flap’

    I wrapped mine in horizontal strips all the way around to the door zipper. 3 strips. Ours is on our deck, 14 feet off the ground so subject to wind. 1st greenhouse we put out got ripped to shreds by wind.
