When I think back to my first garden season, I was nervous about making the most of my harvest.

I had researched a little about canning, but I didn't realize the other options available to me -- like dehydrating and freezing.

I certainly didn't know which method to choose for which vegetable or herb. And I was clueless on what equipment I might need for any given method.

But I learned, slowly, over the course of years. Now I preserve most of the vegetables and herbs I grow for year-round use.

Want to learn these things faster than I did and set yourself up for a pantry or freezer full of homegrown produce? Join me on my new masterclass May 12 or 13!
