Fresh eggs, tomatoes and camp fires?! Oh my...that looks like an absolutely wonderful day!
I love this post! It said so much without using words. I look up to your for living so simply and growing your own food.
Aw, Meg, thank you for saying that! That makes me feel good!
Wonderful post. Love the little hedgehog on your windowsill. Beautiful home you have there. I used to climb trees too when I was a kid- brought back some memories. I also had a pocketknife. Thank you!Suzanne
Hey, how did the pear butter turn out? I finally made another stab at plum jelly last night using store bought plums this time, and it turned out fine. Whew.Suzanne
Wow! Busy girl. Did you do that all in one day?
Hope the pear butter is going well. I think that our pears sat in the brown bag for 10 days or so--until I could force myself to look at them :-) Some were turning a yellow color, which meant they were riper. I think you will notice a difference in the ripeness when you peel them and chop 'em--there is definitely a different feel to the ripe ones. A friend told me that the slightly underripe ones make good honey--Not all of mine were super ripe, but they seemed to work fine!! When in doubt, taste a bite out of the pear--if you can stand raw pears :-) They're not THAT bad--I hate the texture more than the flavor anyway. Good luck--hope it works out well!
LOVED this post. I might have to steal this idea one day. :)Oh & I loved the picture of the tomato. Yummy!
You're life looks so fun. Can I move it?Your eggs are amazing, as are all of your photos. Keep it up!
