Here is one of 4 sink fulls of Bronze muscadines. We also have purple coming in.
Here is one of 2 clothes baskets full of pears.
And this is the end result.... I have put up about 50+ jars of muscadine jelly, pear butter, spiced pears, and pear preserves. It has been very time consuming but I know come winter and Christmas, I will be glad I did it. I will be giving neighbors and other friends a pretty jar of jelly and a fresh loaf of bread for Christmas Happy's.
So with school and preserving our little harvest, I have been a busy little bee. I am also hoping to plant a few cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and lettuce today in a little plot we made Friday.
I still have not gotten out my fall decorations but I hope to this week. It is just now feeling like fall here in Central Ms. The temps. this week should be in the lower 80's, which is a nice change from upper 90's.
Before I go and check out all of your blogs, I wanted to share this You Tube clip. Of course it has a political overtone, that is not my intent. I just thought it was a tear jerker and wanted to share.
I hope you all have a great week. Oh, and Dot, I will be buying that black paint for the mantel today!!!!
