Finally I have time to post pics of our grape jam processing - I will have to post about why it took me so long later!
Of course this is how they start out - fresh picked from our own organic vines right out my back door!
|The Ivy is growing some roots so I can transplant it.|
I love Ivy - it always looks so fresh to me!
Our Bluberries have done pretty well this year. We have 18 bushes most of which are about 3 years old now. We have frozen about 2 gallons of berries and I can't even tell you how many we already ate!
Yellow Tomato - I love these things!
These are a little "ugly" from the uneven rains we have been getting, but they taste delicious!
My next craft project:
I have had these drying out in the garage for ages. My hubby is a very patient man! He drilled the holes for me and I will dig out the dried seeds and then prime and paint them for birdhouses. Riley, my 11 year old, helped to drill them out, so one has a bigger "entry way" than the others, but that way we will accomodate several types of birds. Hopefully, we will attract my favorites- Bluebirds!
We are getting ready for a sale this weekend, so my project is on hold while I clean out closets and drawers for donations to our 4H Club for the yard sale, but I can't wait to get started on this!
I am wondering if I can find a good paint that doesn't have a lot of fumes or residue.
Suggestions are verrrry appreciated !
