Make it your ambition to live a quiet life, work with your hands, and tend to your own business just as I have commanded you. 1 Thessalonians 4:11
“Just want to say, you’re a foundation, even if you don’t know that. For what’s going on in society these days and the barrage of negative things. You bring in from your garden of peace and good knowledge for us to just breathe. Love our roots and grow compassion every chance we have. You do that! Thanks for your healthy tenacity.” -Claude

“Good morning Sharon, I wanted to let you know how appreciative I am that you make these videos. You have a great demeanor, and your teaching skills are superb. I have just started watching your video on pressure canning and yes, that is an intimidating process. That is until you simplified it.….. Thank you again for sharing your time with so many! All the best,” -Shannon
“Sharon, I just felt compelled to write you a quick e-mail and say, ‘thank you’ for what you’re doing. Not many websites out there like yours. It’s like being taught by your best friend. :)” -Ruth in Marion, NY
In my mission to keep up with the appetites of my own crew, gardening, canning and home preserving food has proved to be a great way to provide nutritious, simple, delicious meals. Gradually, my pantry contained fewer and fewer boxes and cans and more and more jars. My garden grew and grew.
Fast forward to today and I’m living my dream of a small homestead and semi self-sufficiency. (I say semi because we all need each other. No one is an island.)
I’m the author of “The Simply Canning Guide to Safe Home Canning.” I’ve also had the opportunity to instruct hundreds of students around the world!
“Sharon, Thank you for all the helpful practical information that you post. I’ve been gardening and canning for a lot of years and your information keeps me up to date, doing it right. Keep up the good work. PS: I Thessalonians 4:11 is one of my favorite verses.” -Johnna
