In farm life, there is always something happening to keep you humble.

I'm not new to canning, but last week I experienced something that had never happened before. When I opened my water bath canner to remove seven jars of fabulous dill pickles...three jars were floating.

Floating jars? What does that mean?

Upon carefully removing the jars, I discovered I had a mess on my hands. For I had one...

 jar 1 



 two....

Amy, I had one of my jars of tomatoes that did the same thing. I didn't do anything different from the other times I water bathed canned them but one out of four broke. Another one didn't seal. I have never had either of these issues in the past. Who knows what the issue was. Have a great canning day.
