Canning Lids hard to get now. Here's source on net to order.greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread
I couldn't find canning lids anywhere up here in Southern Oregon. Canning lids definitely are a seasonal item and they've taken them off the shelves.
If anyone has any concerns about "just-in-time" inventory and supply chain (which I do) ... ORDER EXTRA CANNING JAR LIDS NOW!!
I didn't think about this until this until just a few days ago. I'm new at canning, and didn't can much this year - but learned how - and have friends nearby who are experts. As a result of my being a "canning newbie" ... I have lots of jars ... but only had enough lids for what I was canning this year.
When I went to the stores yesterday ... I was out-of-luck.

Tons of canning lids at the local Wally World--they were even on sale last week!
Hmmmm, Southern Oregon.... Try the Wally World in Talent. It's a biggie, and I'll bet they still have bunches.
Can some extra pears for the rest of us!! I don't miss much about Southern Oregon--just the wonderful pears and the Shakespeare!
