I just had to show this to you! You see that one jar with a whitish thing on top of the orangish stuff? That is what I have dubbed "jar brain". It's from the seal breaking and little beasties getting in and multiplying. I have no idea what organism makes this monstrosity but I know I don't want to eat it!
Well, let's take a close look at jar brain, shall we? It is so wrong!!! It's thick and fleshy...feels like a tongue, only much more slimy.
So, yesterday's count was 97 jars and 155 cans. Plus a bunch of empty ones that will get recycled. We're hoping that we can take the metal cans to the recycler for a little bit of money.
The cans are interesting as well. Some have burst open and there is nothing left in them. Some have gotten tiny pin prick holes in them over the years and the contents have dehydrated in the can....some come out black and moldy. The apple sauce dehydrated and came out in this little discs.
This jar project has definitely been an interesting adventure!
