We started a garden! We have so far: 5 tomato plants, peppers, jalapenos, 3 types of squash, pumpkins, pole beans, eggplant, and 7 types of herbs! :) I am very excited about it because I have NEVER had a functioning garden before! The tomatoes are in those topsy-turvy things. the seeds and other plants were planted today! The picture is of our garden before plants and seeds were added. Hopefully soon I will have another picture up of the plants and vegetables growing like crazy! :)
My friend also taught me how to can! We picked wild blackberries and canned them, as well as 2 gallons of fresh strawberries! Unfortunately, the jam hasn't solidified well..... :( But it does make for some excellent syrup for pancakes so not a loss at all! :) Hopefully she and I will get together and she can teach me to hone my sewing skills!
