I just love this little embroidered bag. I think it's mostly satin stitch for the larger areas. I need to learn more:>.

More jam

Hurray. Eight more half pint jars of strawberry jam:). Today was the last day of strawberry season around here and the local farm is done now. We have two and a half more gallons to can and I'll be done:)

Plus 4 pints of strawberry jam with four more on the way before I call it a night.
I messed up my earlier count. Those were pints. I used 4 containers that were 2 qts each and ended up with 7 pint jars and 12 half pints and just a small bowlfull left over. I think the first 5 pints aren't going to set well and instead are going to be renamed blackberry syrup.
1 gallon of blackberries apparently makes 5 half pint jars of jam. It would have made more but we had a little bit with some Angel Food cake.

So if you miss the harvest you get flowers.

I'm harvesting blossoms about every three days and drying them for tea. I've come to the conculsion that I should have planted at least four plants to use as a supply for tea.


So I'm testing out mobile blogging.
