It's a whole new world for me!

I've been gardening and canning since my mid 20s; I'm 77 now. Last December I moved into the small 955 sq ft home I had built during the pandemic. It's very well insulated and I had a Fujitsu mini-split system put in for heat and cooling. This is the very first place I've ever lived that has air conditioning. And this morning, as I was working up the first batch of tomatoes into tomato soup--it's cooking down as I write--I was able to cool down the house. And the system is so efficient that I can run the dehumidifier mode for a bit and the house cools down as well as it does with the actual air conditioning mode. Cheaper on electricity too. And, boy, does it ever make canning a more pleasant task in summers that get hotter every year.
