Only a very few Crooked Acres pics today – we had a few overcast and rainy days, so I haven’t been outside with the camera this week. It’s supposed to be sunny for the foreseeable future, so I should have something for next week!
Fred harvested the muscadines last week (muscadines, for those of you not in the know, are grapes native to this area of the country). We ended up with 14 1/2 pounds.
So I made jelly! I got 22 half-pints of muscadine jelly. Next year, I may do a muscadine-jalapeno jelly, just to make things exciting.
Isn’t it pretty?
Dehydrated jalapenos. In the past, I’ve made jalapeno powder from dehydrated jalapenos, but Fred didn’t use it much (and I’m too much of a wimp to use that stuff.)
That’s it for the Crooked Acres pics – like I said, not much this week. I owe you!
And THEN, the Pickles, who are loud little hooligans. They were waiting for me outside the foster room door (where I’d been giving the Weeds their snack), and wanted me to get my butt MOVING and give them their snack NOW. They crack me up, the little brats.
Previously 2011: Tucker’s all “WHY I NEVER!” Hee! 2010: “I am hanging out with my bo’friends, lady. You go away!” 2009: But Bill apparently decided that it was time for his eyelips to GO, and ::SPROINGGGG!:: off they went!
2008: No entry. 2007: It’s a good thing he’s so cute. 2006: Maddy and Miz Poo come face-to-face over Tigger. And then Miz Poo ran away from the terrifying kitten. 2005: So, that’s been my day thus far, and it’s not even noon. I think I need a nap.
