Results of My Poll: Most Difficult Food Storage Challenges

Last week I spent every free moment working on my book. 
I write in the car on my laptop while my 7 year-old is taking her swim lessons and even ponder on my walks in our neighborhood. Inspiration comes at the oddest times and places, but it is coming. It makes it difficult to keep up with some of the other things I love to do like write posts. But I hope you will understand. The book just has to get done.

Today I’ll share the results of my recent food storage poll which 400 people participated in answering the question:
