A chapter in the book Highlights of Home

J is for Jars

by Mama Baer


n atmosphere of peace it bears;
no cares found in this room.
We will consume juice, salsa, pears;
we won't face any doom.
Mom's always been our "faithful ant."
Aesop's fable,
lids are labeled,
food for table,
we'll be stable.
Able to eat, we're jubilant!



One of my favorite spots was our food storage room in the basement. My parents made sure we knew the story of The Grasshopper and The Ant (Aesop's Fables) and modeled, as it were, ant living. Every fall, at harvest, we helped fill dozens of jars with fruit, veggies, and juices. The room was cool, clean, orderly, and full of security . . . all bottled up!

Shout out to Helen for sharing Dolly's Chime Operandi format! What fun to practice.
