Canning

Our family has started the canning season with fresh strawberry jam. After we sanitized the jars we are left with a filmy glass. Does anyone have any suggestions. We are using filtered water to boil and clean them. I read vinager, but my wife is worried it might leave an additional test behind.

My garden

New ducks

Our family recently got a duck(Lilly)It loved following us around the yard and would sit by our side. A friend of ours has lots of ducks and had a female that would get attacked everyday by one other duck. Our family welcomed her in our family so she could be happy. But ever since Lilly won't come by us and only wants to be around the other duck. When we let the two out the second duck wonders far off and Lilly is close to follow. We are not sure if we should keep the second duck. I think over…See More
