This is half my canning wall. You can see four metal shelving units, but I have eight, all equally full. The shape of the room (20x3 storeroom) makes it hard to get a shot of the whole thing.



On the opposite side, I had an unfinished wall - just bare studs, with drywall facing the next-door room. So I built more canning shelves. Any real carpenter will laugh him or herself silly at these, but oh well. (They work fine for pint jars but quarts won't fit, too wide.)



Enjoy!

I usually can somewhere between 1000-1200 jars every year. In another room, I have around 1800 lbs. of rice, beans, wheatberries etc. If the zombies come, I can probably hold out for a little while

If I wasn't such a crappy carpenter I could have done something a little more elegant with that stud wall, but ya know, those jars really don't have strong opinions about what they're sitting on so I guess it's OK.
