Welcome to the Monday Homestead Barn Hop where you're invited to link up your blog with your very best post of the week; something happening at your homestead or something of interest that will help benefit fellow homesteaders. Plus, each of the 3 Homestead Barn Hop hostess selects her favorite post of the week to highlight the following week. So be sure to visit all three blogs because the "Featured Homestead" could be YOURS!
I'm excited to share a post from Old World Garden Farms this week!
Jim and Mary have worked really hard to build a lovely small business on their farm and yet, they've still managed to put aside some food for the winter. What caught my attention was the way they stored their canning jars. Those of you familiar with the racks that rotate cans will recognize the concept, only this one works with the glass jars in an upright fashion...
Constructed to fit their jars precisely and with a gentle slant, jars carefully slide forward when one is removed for use. I could see this in a root cellar, basement, pantry, or just like Mary has it here, out in the open to enjoy all those colors! It sure makes it easy to do inventory (250 jars)!
Another plus... they made it from old shipping pallets, so I bet this project came in under $10. They've kindly shared how they did it, too. Just vist them at Old World Garden Farm.
