Summer has officail started and I have no time to blog! I can't believe it's been 2 weeks the last time I posted!
So I put together a few collages of what I've been up to.
Of course I had to do a kitty collage!
The vegetable garden is doing well. Only exception is I lost a few things to the bunnies!
We've been having so much rain the last few weeks and I so glad my flowers have survived!
Just canned and froze strawberries this weekend. Since the weather has been so rainy I wasn't able to go out and pick my own this year. I went to an Amish stand and bought a big flat. I get so excited about making jam, then I look at a the stems!!
Here is the recipe for the strawberry jam
7 cups of crushed strawberries
5 cups of sugar(more suger can be used)
1 package of pectin
1/4 cup of lemon juice
Mix all ingredients and bring to boil. Boil for 5 minutes, remove from heat and rest for 5 minutes. Test the gelling on the back of a spoon.
Pour into prepared jars and seal. Boil in canner for 10 minutes.
