  1. This spring I’m most looking forward to hitting our annual herb fests, digging in the dirt, and walking around in the grass with my bare feet! Oh, and my birthday. I’m a spring baby (April), so spring is always a bit extra special for me. 🙂

  2. Besides the obvious sunshine/lack of snow, I am most looking forward to tackling some of your rhubarb recipes this spring!

  3. I am looking forward to foot freedom day: the day that I go all day without socks and shoes and my feet aren’t cold.

  4. Rhubarb!!! I’ve already finished all my Rhubarb Vanilla Jam I made last year, and I can’t wait to go out in my flip flops and harvest more.

  5. Flip Flops, being outside, throwing the kids outside, growing things, fresh from the garden herbs, warm weather, cleaning out the garage…the list goes on and on!

  6. I cannot wait to start planting! The warm soil, watching things come to life and the smell of fresh cut grass.

  7. All I want to do is go camping at #camplittlenotch!

    And not freeze to death. But I want to wake up in my tent and see the light all green through the trees, and hear the birds and the babble of the stream.

  8. I can’t wait to leave the house with my two little girls without having to do boots, hat, coat, and mittens for each of us!

  9. Spring’s already hit here on the West Coast. I was really looking forward to enough daylight and good weather for biking again, and we just went on our first family bike ride of the season this last weekend.

  10. I am so looking forward to leaving the house without a coat. Living in Wisconsin, winter is way too long.

  11. Having the sump pump discharge pipe thaw enough so we can stop bailing water out of the sump pump hole. Since the pipe actually waters the garden, having the ground thaw enough to be able to plant would be nice too!

  12. I’m looking forward to the first salads out of the garden! With suck a mild winter here in the Pacific NW I’ve already got seedling in the ground.

  13. My absolute favourite thing about spring is the smell of damp sun-warmed earth. I’m looking forward to more melting and sneak peeks of grass and dirt.

  14. I’m looking forward to leaving my windows open all day and taking walks with my dogs and just enjoying being outside!

  15. I’m not really looking forward to spring, to be honest, but I’ll say changing fruit and vegetable options.

  16. Getting out of the house faster! With three kids, four pairs of boots, four coats, lots of gloves and hats, I’m tired! 😉

  17. Only one thing? We are looking forward to everything spring! Mostly, warmer weather. And spring flowers. And so much more.

  18. Being able to be outside– and have my kids spend hours comfortably outside! Where no one cries from too much snow in their mitten!

  19. can’t wait till things begin to start budding and seeing the first flowers in bloom plus anxious to get out and do some yard work. Looking forward to canning season as well.
    Thank you for this giveaway opportunity

  20. What I am most excited about is seeing the Earth transform and seeing new life come up from the ground. Spring bursts forth!!! 😀

  21. Flowers are one of things I am looking forward to this spring. I am so tired of seeing brown from mud or white from snow!

  22. I’m looking forward to getting outside and doing some hiking. The Hudson Valley has great rail trails with fantastic views!

  23. Can’t wait to get my hands in the dirt, the smell of fresh cut grass, and the feel of warm sunshine on my face.

  24. I’d love to have one of these! I teach, and have a glass/mug of something going all day long. The sealability [word?] would be great, since I’m around a million laptops. I cannot wait for Spring this year! It’s late here, and I can’t wait to get out in my garden. We’ve actually had two snows days here – and I’m in ALABAMA! Love your blog. I have your first book and am canning constantly now, especially in July when I live on Lookout Mountain with lots of farmers markets and my own apple and pear trees.

  25. Spring has already come very early this year. We need lots of snow and rain not all this warmth and sun. I wish I was still wearing a coat! I’m looking forward to/hoping for spring rain.

  26. Oh these look great! I am most looking forward to the blooming flowers and trees. So beautiful in my part of the country…

  27. Shedding multiple layers of jackets and feeling the sun on my arms.
    And setting my seedlings out in the warm sun getting them use to being outside.

  28. Fresh tomatoes! I have not a whole tomato since last summer when I picked the last one off the vines in my garden!

  29. I drink iced coffee out of mason jars year round, but now I’m looking forward to it actually being seasonally appropriate! 🙂

  30. One thing I’m looking forward to about Spring? Does everything count?? 🙂 This has been a really rough winter for me so anything Spring is lovely.

  31. Spring glorious Spring. I am looking forward to seeing my flowers pop up: Crocus, Narcissus and Daffodils. Oh yes, relaxing on the garden-bench having my morning coffee.

  32. The thing I am looking forward to most this spring is the blossoming of my dwarf peach trees. Since I planted these trees just last last year I don’t expect fruit but you never know what can happen and I am just so thrilled that they survived their first winter. I would love winning these these items and March 14th is my birthday so it would be a great birthday surprise.

  33. I’m really looking forward to planting in the garden and being outside in the warm sun!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  36. I’m looking forward to my garden!! I’ve already started planning a bit, even if it’s waaaaay too soon for my NE climate. Still covered in snow here!

    • Looking forward to spring’s harvest of citrus in my garden. We have a Meyer Lemon Tree and also a 5 years old Blood Orange.

      I used the recipe from Food in Jars to make my first ever batch of Blood Orange Marmalade last year and used it again this year to make a double batch. I even had enough juice to modify the Meyer Lemon Jelly recipe to the Blood Orange juice and got 8 half-pints of stunningly beautiful pink jelly. Tried the Meyer Lemon recipe from the book last night and added the zest along with Penzey’s candied Ginger for a really nice marmalade too.

      Will pick the rest of the Meyer’s soon and juice. May also try the newest recipe I saw on your blog for the Meyer Lemon and Ginger concentrate! Sounds like Italian sodas for the summer!

  37. My favorite thing about spring is that my lawn looks perfectly green and the fruits of my fall bulb-tending labors are on full display.

  38. Awesome giveaway! Thank you.
    Only one thing?
    warmer temperatures and
    (sorry – three things)
    snow melting

  39. Looking forward to being able to hike in the wilderness in my chacos and not hiking boots. let me tell you about that chaco tan 😉

  40. Walking in the sun without layers and layers of clothing. Watching for the Drawf Tansy to pop up, the bright chartreuse screams spring to me after the long long winter.

  41. I can’t wait to get dirt on my hands and dirt between my toes!! I’m so ready to start working in my garden!

  42. The thing I love about spring is being able to get my wheel chair out and ride around the yard!! No Mud to sink in.

  43. Being able to sit on the deck with my trio of itty bitty Chihuahuas!! The snow is currently over their heads!

  44. I am looking forward to the longer days and hopefully sometime soon the little bits of green poking their way up through the mountains of snow!

  45. I can’t pick just one thing….getting the kids to play outside all weekend long. Planting the garden and eating fresh lettuce. Fresh strawberries. Green grass and flowers. Warmer weather…..

  46. I’m looking forward to getting my garden going. I have been teaching myself to garden for the past 5 or so years. Every year I learn new things! Nothing like a home grown tomato!

  48. Thanks for a great giveaway! I’m looking forward to planting flowers and a few veggies at my new place this year. So, I’m really ready for spring and nice weather to get here.

  51. I am so looking forward to the warmer weather (even hitting the low 50’s today was sweet) because it will melt all of the snow! I still have snow deep enough to cover the picnic table, so I’ll be happy to see it all gone!

  52. I am in my second week of recovery from surgery.
    Recovering at home and being as I live in Vancouver BC Canada ,the weather has been approx 14-16 degrees and all our trees are flowering.
    This is one of my favorite times of the year. My baby was born in the Spring,the plants are waking up and I will soon be able to go to one of my favorite places (my large garden plot) and feel such peace as I grow all kinds of flowers,fruit and vegetables.(some of which I now can,thanks to you)

  53. I have two can’t waits!! I, like so many others, can’t wait to start in the garden!! I also am very anxious to get out hiking with the dogs. It has been such a long winter and we tend to hibernate 🙂 Come on spring time!!

  54. I am so excited for spring and summer so I can take walks n hikes with my family. We r also planning on trying to get kayaks. We love mason jars and I use them for salads and soup containers. These look awesome.

  55. Warmer weather for cycling and walks outdoors, not that I should complain being in California… But I get cold very easily.

  56. Spring to me means ‘Artichokes!’ March to May! I buy a bag full at the store, race home and turn on the stove! Artichokes are interesting to eat. Everyone catches on to the technique of pulling each leaf through you teeth to get the amazing rich, full flavor! They might find it weird on the first leaves, but by the end, every one is an expert! Then we get to the heart! It requires everyone to slow down, use a spoon and scoop the choke out! Off the chart sublime flavor! Spring? Artichokes!! Life is good!

  57. Consistent weather and not the bipolar nonsense we’ve had the past two months. This Florida girl misses the warm days with all the sunshine.

  62. This spring I am looking forward to starting a containeer garden. Due to living in a smal space and cannot dig up the dirt, I must us containers. I am excited to start these and see the wonderful produce I can from container gardening.

  63. I’m looking forward to hanging bright yarn ends in the hanging basket for the birds to use in building their nests.

  64. These are super cute! I’m most looking forward to expanding my garden this spring (that and the seed catalogs)

  65. Really looking forward to going for walks and runs in the ravine by my house. Also, fresh local produce in the farmers markets.

  67. I can’t wait to put my garden in for the season! I already have seedlings starting and look forward to a bountiful harvest 🙂

  68. Ooh! I really want this one 🙂 What I am looking forward to this Spring: finally, finally meeting my baby (any day now!), wildflowers in every color along the roads, and getting to enjoy our ever-progressing backyard. We planted some fruit trees, and should hopefully get some plums and peaches this spring!

  69. That jar is cute. I am looking forward to Spargelfest – fresh asparagus is the first sign that spring is here and fresh fruits and veggies are back.

    Blessings to you!

  74. I’m looking forward to seeing COLOR…tired of white and gray and brown…I want to see green grass, yellow daffodils, red tulips, and bright blue skies!

  75. All the first baby veggies! Even though most things are available year round, nuthin tastes better than those first spring offerings.

  76. I can’t wait for my local Farmer’s Market to start so I can buy apricots, plums, peaches and other delicious fruits for making jams and preserves!!!

    • The number one thing I’m most looking forward to this spring? That big ball of glowing gas in the sky…I have missed it dearly.

  77. I’m looking forward to the days growing longer and warmer, watching the trees and flowers blossom and smelling the sweet fragrance in the air – all this and more that Spring has to offer!

  78. I’m looking forward to being able to sit outside at night and read by candle light. I also love to listen to the bugs make their soothing noises.

  79. I am so looking forward to the different Pansy’s. I love them. The look of the Pansy’s different colors always brings a smile to my face. Sitting with my Mug Holder on my deck staring at the boxed flowers is the best way to start a Beautiful new year/ season. I wish everyone the joy I have planting and canning.

  80. looking forward to – my garden. We just finished the last of the garden (long keeper) tomatoes last week and still have garden produce in jars and the freezer.

  81. There’s this one little weed that grows throughout the Southeast that has these little violet splashes of color on it. Most people ignore it because it is considered a weed, but when I see it, I now it’s Spring. I guess it’s one of those “country things” that I grew up with. I’m looking forward to those so I know the dreary gray skies here in Nashville will soon go away!

  82. I am looking forward to seeing if any of the bulbs I planted last fall survived the winter (and squirrels!) and would bloom for me. Thank you for the giveaway! 🙂

  83. Look forward to more sunshine and warmer weather! My kids and I have been stuck inside so much we can’t wait to get out and play. Congrats on the new book, by the way. It will be one I will buy as I have been looking for recipes with alternative sweetener options! Thanks!

  84. Last Thursday, when we in the Phila. area were snowed in, I started my tomato, pepper and eggplant seeds indoors under grow lights. Most of the tomatoes have already sprouted, and I look forward to being able to get the seedlings into the garden, which I always do sometime in April inside protective enclosures like miniature greenhouses. Then I can start dreaming about making tomato jam!

  85. I am looking forward to sunny days, lots of gardening and spending time with my family and friends! Also fresh veggies and fruits as them come into season and making some strawberry butter!

  96. Living in Southern Oregon, we’ve been pleased with a mild winter and an early spring so I’ve been placing my little tomatoe plants outside in the sunshine these last few days (I grew them from seed – my first time!) to get them ready for their planting in my vegetable boxes. I am so looking forward to watching them grow and later this summer to pick. And then …. to make ketchups, salsas, sauces, pastes. Nothing better than a fresh picked tomatoe!

  97. I am really looking forward to the succession of blooms that begin in spring… and wishing that I had a dogwood tree in my very own yard. 🙂
