Canning isn't really a thing here. I do make a lot of jam and jellies, but not canned veggies. You can't buy canning supplies here.

I'm jealous of the lovely stacks of canned stuff that people make.

I wonder why that might be you think?  Didn't they can in the older days though?  interesting...

Nah, in the olden days they survived on potatoes-until the famine then a lot of them died or emigrated. The ones that survived stuck to a diet of potatoes and other root veg. I guess there was never an abundance of fruit or vegetables that could be preserved for winter.  Apples keep fairly well if stored properly, ditto root veg. The diet was pretty basic

Alaska is on my bucket list, but I saw an animated short once about black flies, so I kinda assume that you spend most of the summer spitting them out. Much like most people assume that we are constantly surrounded by by leprechauns here.


Ok so it turns out that that animated short isn't even Alaskan! Strange how weird stuff gets even weirder in your brain (or that might be just mine)

Haha well having camped in the wild bush of Ontario most of my life [i was weaned off the bottle there when 2 bear cubs lost their mom and my family fed them with my formula instead... thats how wild WE roll... I can attest that at least their huge mean blood drilling monstrous mosquitos can rival some in our Alaskan bush as well... lol and if there was a reason I am sure flies would be a problem in some places... but here I deal with far less flies than in NW Wisconsin which is just south of Ontario... which the song IS about haha.
