Anyone out there besides my ol' man collect canning jars-antique ones, I mean? Just curious. He has a collection that's soon to take over the house. It's his reasoning that he can leave them to the kids as an inheritance. Truthfully, he just enjoys looking at 'em. I have a question-anyone know what to do about cabbage worms besides insecticide sprays? They are ruining our truck garden. Have a good one, Rachel

I have (from when I was a kid) collected jars that include the following:

1. Ball Mason Patented 1858 (Green jar)
2. Waneta Cocoa Boston (Amber jar)
3. Numerous jars with glass lids

I have them stored away since it all just gets to be so much clutter. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time at throwing ANYTHING away. My wife and I want a simpler way of life, but so far haven't decided how to do it!! Have a good day, Rachel...Steve

I found an amber waneta cocoa jar with a 20 on the bottom. Could you tell me anything about this jar. Thanks, JIm

I also have a Waneta Cocoa Boston amber jar, but mine has a 13 on the bottom. It has two seams, and lots of bubbles in the glass. I hope we find out more.

I'm not into collecting, but I do drag the blue ones home when I come across them. My mother always used to throw the soapy dishwater on her garden, said it kept the bugs away, not sure if it worked or not. She always had a good garden tho.
