Second batch in canner and seal fails

I have an All American pressure canner model 916 that works very well with a first batch. If I reload the canner to do a second batch immediately after the first, the seal between the lid and canner itself fails. Steam comes out from under the lid, it does not hold pressure, and I have to "abort the mission". I have tried re-oiling the rim, putting in fresh water, but for the 4th time now this has happened. Any ideas? Thanks!

Pest control

1. Trying to best time the application of Hort. Oil for control of Honey Locust plant bug. Under the microscope looking at a 2nd. yr. twig with buds just swelling. Removed a single bud scale and found 5-6 active bright orange mite like creatures with 8 legs and a few orange eggs. Do the nymphs of the plant bug have 8 legs or is this a different arthropod? 2. Will Hort.Oil work for the newly emerged Vibernum beetle larvae? We've used Sevin with very good results in the past but there are still plenty of bright red berries hanging on this spring and the birds are enjoying them. Thanks, Henry Street

Limited Use Kitchen

I'm having trouble figuring out the nuts and bolts of building a limited use kitchen in an outbuilding on my property. It for the purpose of making value added products in jars out of produce grown on the property for extracting and jarring honey. Jellies, jams, krauts and pickles primarily.
