This is jar cakes. Diane turned me on to them. I went on line and found other recipes and gave them a try.What you see here is pumpkin, zucchini, and strawberry, They(hubby) has eaten all the applesause, and they are working on the blueberry ones too.. These are great to have around and they are good for a year. These are the right size for a bed time snack or a dessert for a late supper. These are so easy to make and seal. I'm planning to make lots more for this winter.
This is figs on my fig tree, seems to be quite a few on there, I'll be picking them soon.
Isn't this a pretty site? I now have 19 of these little feathered friends. I started out with 29 eggs. Some weren't fertile, and some just didn't hatch. Normally it takes 21 days for chicks to hatch. These made an appearance in 18 days. This in an 11 day old chick.This is blueberries... I have been picking for about 2 weeks now. I may get a handful one day. Or a pint the next. They come off a few at a time. I have 4 large bushes, and they are different varieties.By the time one is through, another starts getting ripe.
This is some of the berries I have picked.(time to clean out the freezer)
This is some of the canning I have been doing. I can dried beans and peas when they are on sale.
Sweet corn is being sold in some of the vegetable stands too. I have white beans, black eyed peas, cranberry beans,pinto beans, split-pea soup, beans and rice, and home made vegetable beef
This is one of the blueberry bushes that I am picking from.(me and the robins)
This is some blackberries I picked this morning. This is only about 1/2 gallon. They are just starting to get ripe here, they are about 2 weeks early this year. Where I pick is snake and chigger infested. Long pants and tall boots are required. The name of the place is Rattlesnake Ridge, it is well named. I make lots of noise when I'm there to run the snakes off. Copperheads don't run!!! I try to keep a long stick in case I have to educate a snake or two. Chiggers and ticks are very bad this year. I've seen more snakes this year than I've ever seen. A neighbor was weed eating our backyard and killed a copperhead. We live in town........
This is some tomatoes of of ours, they didn't have a label, they seem to be a small variety.
I have been making a lot of homemade yeast bread, french bread and rolls and dough-nuts. I love homemade yeast doughnuts.Cinnamon roll are good too.I made long flat loafs for sandwiches too. They were good. We shared with the neighbors Thursday night so she wouldn't have to cook.She doesn't cook as well as her husband and they both put in long days at work, They also have 3 kids to feed bathe and put to bed. We set up my tent and put a table and 6 chairs and a small table and bench in the tent for 3 of the kids. We had cold sandwiches a veggy tray and strawberry shortcake for desert . It was all good. :)Had very little clean up and the bugs couldn't get to us.
I've did a little sewing lately too. I'll try to post some pictures on here next time. I'm a little tired now,and I need to go pick berries again in the morning . So I'll bid you a good night and God bless you all. Donna
