Pears

It's been a very busy week. I canned pears, dehydrated pears, and made pie filling out of them.  They are delicious.

Cantelope

I found one lonely cantelope that was growing inbetween the garden box and the wood slat fence! I couldn't budge it! So I took the vine away from it and did what I should have done long ago.  I put the plant vines up on poles, and now I can see there are several cantelopes growing.  Hopefully this will keep them in the sun and develop into large tasty melons by the end of Sept!

Jar Sealing with my Food Saver

Yesterday I sealed into mason jars:

butter powder
egg powder
yeast
cheddar cheese powder

Very easy with the Food Saver attachment! Worked like a charm! Now my plastic bags of these products are gone and the food is in clean, neat jars!

Sewing Project 2 - second skirt

Here is another skirt I made  yesterday, and I'm happy to say that I FINALLY understood the directions.  Wheew!  Took me forever.  Now I can make partial elastic waistband skirts to my heart's content!
