We made 8 1/2 pints of cherry jam yesterday. Today we made a batch of stewed rhubarb, but we will be eating that tomorrow at the BBQ.

I was going to pressure can potatoes today but I think they are russets...They will get mushy and not hold their shape.

Today, Mom and I made 4 pint jars of Sunrise Marmalade. It sure involved a lot of shredding and slicing. LOL I am glad it is made tho. I love marmalade.

I am watching the show on the pope's Encyclical on the ecology. It sure is interesting. I sure am proud of the Pope, for standing up and stating this. As was mentioned in the show, this is a stance that the Catholic church and many of its Popes have supported for many decades. It is time that people listen. We need to take care of the planet, and stop abusing the planet and the people on it.

Froze enough for 3 pies. And made a pie. While it was in the oven, a friend of ours stopped by. He's older and ill so he cannot get out of the car so I went out to talk to him and totally forgot my pie was in the oven...Needless to say, it is totally burned !

Well, we went through our freezer, and took out some raspberries and cranberries that we had frozen last fall / winter. With the berries, mom made 4 + 1/2 pints of raspberry-cranberry jam. Tomorrow, mom is going to make some sunrise marmalade. I think it uses oranges, lemons, limes, a grapefruit, shredded carrots, crushed pineapple, a bit of shredded coconut, and a tiny bit of whiskey. It sounds yummy, anyway. LOL

Well, I got my 8 qts of strawberries yesterday. Boy were they ripe so I had to do something with them right away !
I made 2 batches of jam and the rest I will freeze whole for cooked strawberry pies this morning.
I didn't get the cherries as they are so small...by the time I got the pit out, there wouldn't be much cherry left...So not worth the time for the price.

Yep, I did the same last year Patti. It's really easy to grow and it tastes totally different to the dried stuff. Even the stuff you dry yourself tastes different.

Thanks for the article by the way.

Now all of your stuff is starting off where mine has all but snuffed it. My rhubarb is toast but I've still got some herbs growing, oregano, thyme, parsley, sage and the turmeric is still growing strong.

Yesterday, I went to a friends house for some dill to freeze as mine is still so small and she has a ton of it !
I ended up coming home with some dill to freeze, a lot to plant...
PLUS....
oregano plants, variegated hostas, lettuce plants and kale to eat.
So besides laundry, I have a ton of things to find a place to plant and then plant !!!
All between the rain drops ! We have had over 8" of rain in the past 2 days with more to come every day this week !!!

It has been so crazy hot here I didn't realize we were low on meat. So it was off to Costco today. I picked up 2 packs Chicken Thighs, 1 Pork Loin, 1 small Beef Strip Loin. I got them all cut and FoodSavered, then into the freezer. I really should be cleaning out my freezers not refilling them. I need to defrost them.

On Monday I made 2 batches of Strawberry Freezer Jam. It was 35 C outside and the AC wasn't set up yet so there was no way I was going to can anything. Tuesday, I froze 10 lb strawberries. Now I will relax just a little and wait for the very local strawberries. The ones I got were from a farm a couple hours away, but there is a grower in town, they usually have smaller amounts.

We ate some of the stew for dinner tonight. I put 3 meals of Stew into the freezer. I started to make pie dough but only had enough shortening for 16 pies. I tried to get more from the gas station, but they had none. So I made what I had and will try the store 10 mins from here tomorrow. I probably have enough stew for 12 more pies.

I filled the roaster oven half full with Beef Stew. I will freeze some as is and make individual pot pies. I got the craving for it on Friday when I was chatting with a co-worker. We were talking about things we do to make life easier, beef stew came up in the conversation. This morning I was bugging her on FB about it, turns out she made Beef Stew this weekend too.

I have a friend, she's 88, and has Wonderful asparagus and rhubarb !
She takes her kitchen scraps and a bit of water and whips them up in her blender.
She then pours the slurry around the asparagus bed and the rhubarb...(once/month)
I've never seen such great beds !

They are very voracious feeders. Either well composted cow manure or some blood and bone should keep the plants happy

Nope Linda I've tried all sorts of food recipes and even the straight raw food diet but he just won't eat it.

I don't know what the cat food is like in the US but we have a couple of really good brands here that are very good.

If I could just get a good supply of mouse and lizard meat, I'd be sure he'd eat it but any other stuff he just won't have it

No. Garlic and onion are not good for cats. It is bad for them, and can be toxic.

Hi When I make my dog food, I add garlic powder...I read somewhere that it helps with the flea and tick situation.
I wonder if it would be good in your cats food, too ?

FLOWERDALEJEWEL this is not food for me (tho I would be happy to eat it, since it tastes good.). Maybe your kitty does not like the spices you put in it? I add no seasoning or spices to the food I make the kitties, except for a tiny bit of salt. The salt helps in preserving it, and is in regular cat food that you buy in the stores. Cats do actually need a small amount of salt, as most animals do.

I'd love it if my cat would eat my food, but he won't. He only picks at roast chicken and can only muster up a couple of nibbles for raw meat.

He likes kitten food so in order for him to eat that's what he gets

Good morning everyone. Well, back to the regular grind. Today, I will be baking bread.

Yesterday I ended up making cat food. I made 16 jars. This batch I am calling Shepherds Pie Cat Food, and is made with sirloin beef steak (that I bought on sale), Chicken giblets, potato, carrots, peas, and sweet potato, all blitzed together in the food processor. The meat makes up over 3/4 of the ingredients, since cats need high protein food. I add the vegetables for their nutrient quality and for fibre. I found that when I did not add it, the kitties became constipated. This ratio seems to be working very well for them, and they are very healthy on it.

I was inside all today so I put together dinner for tonight and tomorrow night as well.

My lovely handyman Simon, left me a book on sausage and salami making so I'm going to think about making salami and some sausages. I have the mincer and sausage making gizmos on my mixer and I did do them a long time ago so I figure I'll give them a try again.

Well, early yesterday morning, I had to go and get my purse at the Amish Butcher Shop ! While I was there, I picked up a whole pork loin and put it in a brine to make Peameal / Canadian Bacon....

Made ribs for dinner but I had run out of rib rub, so had to make a batch of that !
We had my jarred dried au gratin potatoes !

Well, it was a beautiful day outside, so I went outside, and cleaned the garden beds. Now it will be easier to get the garden started, when it is time to put the plants in it.

That's a lot of chives Patti! I think I'd get twice that with my Parsley, but I usually freeze it so I can use it in Tabouli, I eat that a lot.

I am finally getting around to canning some caramelized onions. They are cooking in my slow cooker. I will be able to put them in jars soon, and pressure can them.

I'm still picking my apples as I need them as I don't want them hanging around the house to get soft.

I've still got herbs that I need to dry and store and I'll get around to preserving the apples when all of these doctors appointments go away.

I have an appointment with the ear specialist tomorrow, I'm hoping he'll be able to fix this echoing in my ear and head, it's driving me up the wall

I planted my potatoes yesterday and my hanging shoe bag. I planted basil and parsley and 4 kinds of lettuce. All seeds in the bags !
Cut the grass, some laundry, hooped and harvested a ton of chives.
Most of the chives will be dried and some will go into the freezer.

Well, I managed to get Mom's computer working for her yesterday. Now I need to get her printer hooked up. I think I will wait a couple days before tackling that. I need a couple days to destress after doing the computer. LOL
I need to worry about other things for a while now. I had wanted to take one of our fur-kids to visit my dad and grandma, in the next couple days. That will be stressful enough. Who knows... maybe one day, I will be allowed to do what I would like to do, for the day. LOL

I've still got apples to do, but with the stupid hospitals making and cancelling appointments and all my other appointments, it's looking like another 2 weeks before I'll be doing anything emoticon

Yesterday, I made a stuffed chicken and dressing using a frozen chicken and bread, canned broth and celery, herbs that I dried from my garden and left over corn on the cob.
The only thing fresh I used was the onions in the stuffing/dressing.

Now I have 2 dinners in the freezer ! Bonus !
