from our little garden :)
I planted a few seeds this year just for fun :)
I've decided that when I eat a carrot
I prefer it to be orange :)
This is a two gallon ice cream bucket.
Look at the size of those berries.
I've been making blackberry freezer jam.
Also peach freezer jam.
We didn't raise the peaches.
I bought them at a fruit stand.
I'm new at this, I wanted to can them,
but didn't watch a video until after
purchasing them and I should have bought
Live and learn, I'll do better next time.
Remember our cabbage patch?
And us making kraut?
Well, I have had several blogging sisters
ask me how it turned out.
The kraut that we canned,
we haven't tasted yet, because it is
suppose to get better with age.
We will probably open a jar sometime
around October, but I do love seeing it
sitting on the self looking pretty
with our other canned foods.
The kraut that we left in the plastic
food grade buckets to ferment we decided not to can.
We put them in canning jars and put them in the frig.
They taste amazing!
They say that water bath processing them will remove
many of the beneficial probiotics that are
now linked to improvements in immune,
cognitive, digestive and endocrine function.
Those are the healthy reasoning for eating
They will keep for months in the frig.
The only problem is they do take up
spaces as well :)
On a different note, my flowers
are looking lovely.
Look at this pretty Holly Hock.
It's growing by the front porch
and was planted by the birds.
I actually planted some a few years
ago and they did nothing.
The birds have also planted a few
sunflowers around the yard.
Isn't it sweet that they know how much
I love flowers :)
I do hope that you are all having a
