April Fool's Day

Well, I got 7 1/2 pints of lemon juice canned up yesterday. Now I have orange juice filtering so that I can make an orange jelly. The recipe is up stairs so I will have to share it with you another day. I got to the library yesterday and checked out all of the books they had on canning and dehydrating... Lots of new recipes.... Can't wait to make them. I also checked out a book about virtual knitting and crocheting. It has a picture for each and every step. So I am hoping that this book will help me to learn how to knit and more stitches for crocheting. I want to make a new type of blanket.

I would also like to thank Melonie for her concern. And to answer your question I feel much better after I prep. But now I also have a huge list of stuff that I feel needs to be done.... Well, isn't that always the way. LOL!

My newest seedlings are doing very well, lima beans, cabbage, & sweet peppers. All have sprouted and are growing like crazy. I went to the dollar store and got a couple of the cake pans with the plastic lids that is what I am using now as my starter trays. They seem to be working very well and for a very reasonable price.

I would also like to congratulate Jenna over at Cold Antler Farm for her wonderful article in Mother Earth News! I was reading it and then once I turned the page and saw her beautiful sled dogs I knew who the author was. Needless to say my family is like who? Jenna also is the author of "Made from Scratch" which you can find here at Amazon.

Tons of chores to do around here today. Laundry and I have to clean out the fridge.... Yuck! But someone has to do it.

Gotta Run,
