This is called “ Making Lemonade outta Lemons. “
The last storm we had here took out this beauty. So I chopped off the stock and brought this girl into the house!
We have been absolutely swamped around here with that list.
We finished up canning all the green beans we’re gonna put away this year.
Actually - the fact that we had to scrounge for the very last jar to fit inside the canner helped with that decsion. ;)
We’ll be canning up more potatoes next.
Cleaning out the garden has been the most time consuming challenge - so far. I think Dwayne’s decided he’s in favor of using the black plastic next year.
Even after using the net on the Navaho Thornless Blackberries - the huge Tennessee June bugs managed to win.
But it really doesn’t matter. I’m just not the least bit impressed with this blackberry bush.
They put out as if they’re going to be absolutely huge. However - their ripening is downright inconsistent to the point of being annoying. Not only that - but - their taste is more of a “ Ya’ never know what yer’ gonna get “ surprise that I don’t think many people would find appealing. One berry can be out of this world. The next can taste like water.
We’ll try again with a different variety - later down the road.
Take a gander at this while you can. Come Friday - Gone!
It’s time to start on the house - before we both go crazy.
Hubby and I made a trip to Home Depot this morning. Click here to see what will be delivered on Friday!
At the same time - we found a great deal on the Gas Stovetop that we chose for our island that Dwayne’s going to build.
So click here to see what they’ll be bringing with the new Fridge!
It’s gonna be such a great help when it comes to all my canning.
I can hardly wait!
