A2 Hosting still has not fixed the Database after their servers failed AGAIN. A2 Hosting is the WORST!
Because of this, new posts are currently missing and I can only HOPE they eventually recover the table they didn't restore after their latest failure.

Jam, Frost, and Just a Little Snow

Last weekend was cool, but not cold and between a tiny local farmers market that had three other vendors and a local grocery store parking lot, we sold off about 40 jars of jam.  Of course, this pretty much just covers the cost of about half the other jams I have made lately, but it definitely helps.

Hubby and I even discussed signing up for booth space at the "Taste of the Foothills", but finances are fickle and we probably won't this year unless things change in the next couple days.

Though it sure would be nice to make this jam-habit pay for itself, especially since I made another batch of peach jam this week and a small batch of green-chili jam and a jam that I doth dub... "Mariachi Cherry"... a mild chili jam with fine chopped maraschino cherries.  I am not even generally fond of chili jams, but I think this one is pretty spectacular.

I will also be making some more ChowChow relish this weekend since it did turn out pretty yummy and cabbage is on sale right now, but I may be nearing the end of my canning binge since fall has moved in and fruit and veggies will be expensive again soon.

And... with a chill in the air (33 degrees to be exact), frost on the ground, and just a little bit of snow...


Summer is officially over and it is time to start winterizing and mulching around the bushes and getting out the sweat-pants.

Hopefully though a few of our locals will still be selling these spectacular beauties throughout the winter:

Almost too pretty to eat, but farm fresh eggs are REALLY tasty, and they are selling them for less than you would pay in the store!

And, of course, as we say goodbye to summer, we say hello to my favorite season... winter.

Glad to hear you found a way to sell some of you products. Would love a jar of your cherry green chili jam. Sounds wonderful if you have any left. Not sure what you have on hand.
It has rained here for two days now and my bones feel the dampness but love it non the less.

I think we will be making more of it, though may not have enough chilies to make it more than "extra mild".  Will have to send hubby down with some relish and jams sometime.
