Ah, fall is almost here! Our first cool front of the season rolled through last night. Outside, the birds are singing, the children are playing, and there’s a lovely breeze blowing. We’re topping off at about 85 degrees today, which to much of the country, I understand, is still considered quite warm. However, here in Texas, it’s about 20 degrees cooler than it has been! With that in mind, I’m going to keep this post short and sweet so I can go outside and get to play a little with the kids.
Now, here in our little corner of the world, we harvest most of our food in June, before it gets so hot that everything dries up and withers away. So, we’ve had our vegetables picked and put away for a couple of months, now. However, in much of the country, folks are just now starting to bring in that delicious garden bounty.
I know I like to have all of our cans in the pantry look nice and pretty. So, this year, I decided to make some labels to put on the jars to give them a more organized, uniform look in the pantry. Also, if we decide to give some of our produce as gifts to our friends and family, pretty labels really make those jars look nice! Just tie a pretty little bow around the lid, and there you have it! No other gift wrap necessary!
So, if you have been busy canning all your produce to keep for the year ahead, why not pretty those jars up a little with some nice labels? At the bottom of this post, you can find the labels I used. I’m offering them for you to use. Please feel free to download them, and use them for your pantry. I only ask that you direct people to this post if they wish to use them, too! There are several different styles to choose from. You can print them out on label paper, or on cardstock to tie on with a pretty ribbon. Get creative!
