Iowans have gotten their lawn and garden questions answered by Iowa State University horticulturists for three decades by calling Hortline at 515-294-3108, an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach hotline. With the expansion of the Internet, an email option was added in 1997 with inquiries directed to hortline@iastate.edu. Now the Iowa State horticulturists who support Hortline have assembled frequently asked questions on a Yard and Garden FAQs website at http://expert.hort.iastate.edu/.

Are you ready to can those fresh fruits and vegetables with Grandma's pressure canner but don't know when it was last used? ISU West Pottawattamie County Extension will test your canner gauge at NO CHARGE and advise you if it is functioning properly and if other repairs may be needed to safely preserve your garden bounties.  Please be advised: Oven canning is NOT a safe shortcut, Barb Fuller,  Nutrition and Health Specialist and a Master Food Safety Advisor for Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, says, “Many individuals have shared they have tried, or have heard about, oven canning. Just because a jar is sealed doesn’t mean the food inside is safe to eat. I’ve had people say to me- ‘I haven’t gotten sick from it.’  I tell them they are probably very lucky!  Botulism is a big concern.”
