At 82, Agnes Riggs of Upton has a can-do attitude when it comes to her hobby: canning.
Her efforts earned numerous accolades at the Kentucky State Fair, including a canning sweepstakes win. Additionally, Riggs placed in 16 categories ranging from plum preserves to red tomatoes.
“I can anything there is to can,” she said as she worked in her kitchen among dozens of empty jars and many more filled with pickles, tomatoes and soup.
A pressure canner has stayed on her stove all summer, she said.
