Haley Diem was a little embarrassed this past weekend.
The One Vegetable, One Community coordinator (it's a new position this year at the Duluth Community Garden Program) had just covered every flat surface of her kitchen with home-grown produce and had only one thing left before she began her annual salsa-making operation: getting some canning jars.
Long story short, Diem returned home sans jars and had to start dumping out condiments and Mason-jar vases in order to start canning.
From no seeds available at the beginning of the year to a shortage of canning jars and lids now, it's been the best of times - and the worst of times - for vegetable gardeners this year.
