Fall is in the Air- Pumpkin time!

We went to a friend's house and he let us each pick a pumpkin from his LARGE pumpkin patch- Thanks again!  We have had terrible luck with pumpkins- they grow about as big as baseballs, then the whole plant shrivels and dies. :/

Roo, carrying his pumpkin, with Dad's help

Doodle with his- he was pretty proud of this huge thing
The whole gang- Left to Right- Doodle's, Ben's, Roo's, Bug's, and mine

What we've been up to....

Canning, Canning and more canning
Tomatoes- I LOVE the way the yellow tomatoes look in the jars along with the reds- it looks so pretty!

V-8 (err rather I think it was only V-5) lol- no beets, watercress or spinach
And  also some Chili con Carne
Elderberry Jelly- yum!

Jalapeno Pepper Jelly (I LOVE this on cream cheese with crackers- my favorite snack!)

What's up next- Applesauce!
 My Favorite Canning resource-  They have "how to's" on everything- complete with pictures.
