2012    Yesterday I made the jelly.   I got some tarte green apples at the farmer’s market and made an apple pie for Norman, then used the others and the peelings for jelly.  I also picked the last handfull of grape from my vines and a handful of blueberries and put those in and got 5 cups of juice to make jelly.  I finished the half cup jars for the girls for Christmas presents and got one jar for us of the apple jelly then I took the last quart and pint of grape juice from last year and made grape jelly.   I got 8 jars of grape jelly.   So I am almost done with jelly.   I hope to get some more apples for jelly for us.  Today I will pick tomatoes again and put those with the ones I picked Tuesday and will can a small batch.  Tomorrow we hope to burn some of the brush that is collecting, then on Saturday we will pick beans again.   And so the harvesting and canning goes on.   Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
