The 99th Pennsylvania Farm Show opened up today in Harrisburg. I spent most of the day at the Fillmore Container booth, demonstrating some recipes from Preserving by the Pint and chatting with people about new guidelines for jar lids, good things to pressure can, and some of the fun jar accessories on display.
I slipped away from the booth a couple times to scout out the rest of the show. It was intensely crowded, so I didn’t manage to take more than a few pictures, but I thought I’d share some of the scenes I did capture.
I heard that there were a lot more entries to the Jazzy Jar Contest this year than in those past. Jars are hot!

Some of the entries in the preserves contests. I always enjoy seeing the wide variety of new and old jars people use to hold their fruits and vegetables.
