Wanting to have more on hand, I bought a 25-lb. bag of organic carrots. The price was the same as the "pie-zoned" industrial ones too! Below is 25-lbs. of processed carrots, amounting to:
1/2 gallon-jar of dehydrated, 7 pints of dilled pickled carrots, and 5 pints of plain canned.
We also hit the farmer's market. Huckleberries are the most expensive fruits one can get! I got a gallon bag and a few pints of raspberries and made jam, below. I ended up with:
15 half-pints of huckleberry jam, 2 half-pints of huckleberry and raspberry jam, and 3 half-pints of raspberry jam.
We hope to hit a huge farmer's market down in Spokane for peaches next week, which come into season then. Our seasons up here are very short, so one gets what they can as soon as they appear.
Oh... the naughty "thing" is at the very end. (laughing)
A few flower photos...
The photo below may be offensive to some.
We first saw the robins "fighting" like crazy, then, "...oh. they are not fighting, they are..." Yeah. A new nest was spotted in the tree. A few days ago Himself came inside, laughing hard and grabbed the camera. The squirrels were having sex all over an area in the yard for over 15 minutes. The photo below is naughty and/or humorous, depending on one's point of view. Move on to something else if you think you will be offended and it is "evil"...
