Yesterday since the weather was not cooperating, I never went riding, although truth be told I probly coulda rode indoors cause I don't think it actually rained that much.
Well anyways on Thursday I had gone down to Neils sisters house and picked some Nanking cherries and some apples. I phoned and asked if I could, and she said come on down cause she will never use all there is there. When I got there (I got sidetracked visiting my neighbor who usually is never home) she had some berries picked and so I went to work and when I went to leave, she gave me her berries too! I may not have picked so many if I known that!
We also picked a bunch of apples, I was only gonna pick one bucket, but her and Neils mom talked me into picking a second one cause the apples are so ripe they are just falling of the trees, so I got two buckets. So far I have only made two apple crisps, one fro lst night and one in the freezer, thinking maybe some applesauce is in order.
So since I was gonna be home, I cooked up all the berries and strained them for the juice, I got 51 cups of juice I froze for another day, and 6 left to make jelly prolly today.
Then since I was canning already I pulled out rhubarb and raspberries from the freezer and made 11 jars (2 batches) rhubarb raspberry jam, mmm cant wait to try that, maybe I will have toast for breakfast.
Well I am supposed to be floating down the river today for a stagette, but I'm thinking we may do something else instead cause it would be mighty cold in the river. Should be fun no matter what we do.
