A Bumper Crop!
I've made two pies and have put enough in the freezer for at least 10 more pies. Of course I've given many quarts away to friends for pies, jelly and jam as well. And today I made raspberry jelly for the first time ever. It looks so yummy, I can't wait to try it, and it's such a gorgeous red! I'll likely make one more batch as there are still more berries to ripen. Yes indeed, a bumper crop....
Speaking of bumper crops, we had two additions to the (extended) family today (while I was making jelly.) My niece who got married last August had twin girls this morning. Mama and babes are doing well. No names have been announced yet (sort of like the royals, haha.) I can't wait to meet them!
I am linking up with Kara at A Spirit of Simplicity for her new linky party "Tuesday Afternoon".
