Burnside, your pictures look great!

Our relatively cool, wet spring and early summer (not "normal") is what contributed our good cabbage harvest.

"Normal" years, which means a short spring that turns into a hot, dry, early summer, can produce a nice cabbage crop but by the time you harvest, the plants are getting really stressed by the heat.

On the opposite end of the spectrum this year, the early lack of heat and excessive moisture has contribute to a less than stellar tomato crop.... at least in my garden.

Oh well..... that's gardening, isn't it??

Whats good for me may not be good for the weak minded.

Pressure Cookers

My mom used to tell me about that time she blew up her pressure cooker, sending applesauce bits all over the kitchen and what a mess to clean up. A bit of apple peel blocked the pressure release valve. She had burn marks on her arm. That story has always prevented me from pressure cooking, despite mom's fantastic roasts!
Your photos make me reconsider. I put up a lot in jars, but always waterbath, which can take so much time that food quality suffers. Waterbath canning also is pretty limiting as to what you can can. Maybe I will get courageous and purchase another pressure cooker, having given my first one, like yours, to Good Will, unused.
