Spread The Love For May

Where did the month of May go? Seems like just yesterday Lanny won the Tomato Basket for April’s Spread the Love. Never the less-May is gone and it’s time to thank all of you Acorns out there who not only support the Blind Pig & The Acorn-but make it a better place to visit by leaving wonderful, insightful, and thoughtful comments!

So I’m sending a great big THANK YOU to all the Acorns who commented in the month of May:

    Your May give away is a great one. One of these days I am going to win.
    We were hoping to come to John C this year, but the blacksmith can’t find a class he needs.
    Some day we will get there and we will meet in person!

    Congratulations Kristi,
    and don’t give up canning, Tipper.
    Vegetable soup is sooo good in mason jars.
    I also put a little vinegar in my green beans when I can them. They all love them that way around here.
    I’ll have to send you my recipe.
    Have a great day.

    Yay for Kristi. I love her blog as well. I am trying to catch up…May was not a very good month for me. I am hoping things will settle down now a bit.

    I can’t believe it’s June already! Great prize but I have to say that I have given up on canning, at least for a while. I’ll be looking forward to your canning posts. I had to teach myself from a book. The first year it went well but the second year I must have read a different book because it said to add vinegar to my beans to keep them looking green.! I should have questioned it but I didn’t. I ended up with jars of semi-pickeled green beans. LOL Oh, and I also would never use my pressure cooker because it scared me to death (it was an old one made who knows when)! 😀

    Hey, congratulations to Kristi!!!
    I’ve sure enjoyed the moon sign posts–wish they could go on and on. There is so much information in the old ways.
    Yes, May has gone quickly, I think it must have been all the dark wet days. But it’s warm now!
