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.
I bet that she sure enjoyed your help. It is fun to get together and work with friends on canning. I can imagine how wonderful your house smells. I love the smell of grape juice as it is coming out of the steamer.
Have a wonderful day with your family.
Your day with Mrs. Faye sounds like so much fun! I wish I would have been there. 🙂 Your lunch sounds especially good too. I am so glad your tomatoes did so well. Our tomatoes tried to trick us at first. Fall is in the air for sure, and days are getting shorter. Makes me want to go hiking. With you. 🙂 Your house always smells yummy!
