Crate #1 of 3 tomatoes that will get turned into sauce, canned, and squirreled away for the cold winter nights, when all you want is a taste of sunshine and summer. 🍅😊☀️ #foodstorage #canning #tomatoes #summer #puttingup via IFTTT

Today's bounty. Weed whacked and mowed for the first time since early summer due to our severe drought. It has finally rained enough to revive the crispy nature of all things green. 🌧 #grow #garden #vegetables #growfood #backtolife #gardening #foodfromthegarden via IFTTT

The finished Wagner #6, seasoned and ready for use. $7 well spent I'd say. 🍳 #wagner #castironskillet #castiron #seasoning #backtolife #vintage via IFTTT

This is the Wagner #6 from yesterday, after a spell on the oven while it self-cleaned. Other pieces went in with it as to not waste the energy on one pan. Looks rough, but all the built up carbon has been turned into ashes. 🔥 #vintage #backtolife #treasure #castiron #castironskillet #wagner #diy via IFTTT

Well folks, I found another Wagner in distress today. I actually found several, but there was only one that wasn't warped badly. I'll start here, with nasty carbon build up on the sides and cooking surface. The handle is actually in pretty good seasoned condition. This Wagner #6 for $7. Let's see how it comes out! #wagner #beforeandafter #castironskillet #castiron #treasure #vintage #backtolife via IFTTT

This is my favorite kitchen tool. My husband found it all alone, in a very bad way, on a shelf at Savers. I could make out "Wagner" underneath decades of rust and grit. They wanted $5 for it, presumably because it was in such terrible shape. We eagerly snatched it up and brought it home for a nice, long bake in a very hot oven. It came out almost perfectly, just needed a little seasoning. It is by and far the best I've ever used. 🍳 #wagner #castironskillet #castiron #savers #saversthriftstore #treasure via IFTTT
