    Congrats on Farmer of the day. I'm in front of a computer about 10 hours a day. My urban farming is my escape.

    Canning does have a way of relieving stress doesn't it? I haven't canned this year but plan on doing a lot next year.

    I spent 40 years in front of a computer so I feel your pain.
