Written by Sue,Wednesday, June 5, 2013 A very nice day, partly cloudy, and low 80's ~perfecto~
Have you ever had one of those days where every thing just seemed to fall in place, and you were able to get so much accomplished, yesterday was such a day for me, so much so, I even amazed myself.~smile~
|Tip for today.... Always start and end with a clean kitchen makes work so much easier and you are ready for the next days work.Which I will be doing as soon as I finish this post. ~smile~|
and strength, that I do anything!!
Since the family has left, DH and I have been trying to get things caught up here at the farm, of course as every farmer knows that is almost impossible. Besides the potatoes, I have been busy picking,shelling,and canning, English peas,(in the south we call these garden peas), yellow squash, and finish the strawberries(today),
|They were just hanging there asking to be picked.|
I thought about making a tutorial video but decided not too, I have a very southern accent, and you would probably be laughing so hard, that you would not follow instructions,~smiling~, so I decided to take lots of photos for a tutorial and am planning to add them to my recipe page,(hopefully soon,lol) if you are interested in knowing how I canned these veggies, stay tuned, or feel free to ask me any questions.
|~Washed and ready to slice~|
until the phone calls. "Oh, mother this is the best jam, ever. ummm Have you anymore, please?~big grin~ This is only a small batch,(that's what we call a canning of jam.) If I do say so myself, it was "fittin to eat". lol
In between work, I was having some fun, I love lavender, while I was working in the garden the fragrance was heavenly,.... so I gathered some.
