I am still working on my summer kitchen. It was a wood shop. I am supposed to split the work areas into space for canning and the rest will be for raising seedlings under shop lights. i want to put formica on the kitchen counters. But I am not sure how much to cover with the formica. What is the an acceptable area for canning. I have a 7x2 sink area, (2 sinks) a 3x4 roll around table, 3x4 desk( formica topped), and a L shaped work bench that is 40 square feet. In addition I have one area that I can either use as a counter 3x4 feet or tear out and put a small freezer there. Does this sound like enough room for a canning kitchen? I can also use any area under the l shaped work bench to raise veggie plants, with the shop lights hanging under the counters. How much counter space is normal for a good canning kitchen, I don't want to short myself and make it more work than it is now. Any suggestions appreciated.
