Grapes

The girls and I are starting on our grapes today.  We picked 1/2 bushel this morning.  We plan on making mostly jelly from these.  Tomorrow we will start making juice.  Yesterday I went to our friend Mrs. Faye.  I helped her with her grapes.  She wanted to make jelly and juice.  Last year, they purchased a steam canner and a steam juicer like ours but they were not too confident with using them.  So I went over to help them a little.  It was a fun day.  We had green beans, corn, cucumbers, cole slaw and cornbread for lunch.  YUM!

Not much else going on here.  Just mostly canning.  We plan on picking more tomatoes this evening.  We have been blessed with lots of beautiful tomatoes.  Our temperatures have been cooler at night here.  You can feel fall in the air.  The dogwood trees are starting to turn colors.  Apples will soon be ready.  I love fall.  As I am sitting here typing this post, the sweet smell of grapes fills my home.  God is so good to us.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

 

Spring Blooms

Our dogwood tree in bloom.  This one is located just outside the dining room window.

Our lilac bush.   I love just walking around the house and smelling the sweet smell.  They make the entire yard smell so good.

Coming around the house from the kitchen door, looking at the bushes.   The smaller bush is our gooseberry bush.

Care to rest, anyone?  This is a beautiful sitting spot.  We will be going to Jessica’s to celebrate Easter with them.  I pray you all have a wonderfully, blessed Easter filled with the presence of our Lord.

God bless.
