Fall is Here!

I know it has been here for a while now, but the trees are really in rare form this year in Oklahoma.  I don't know if it just my imagination, but the leaves seem to be so much more vivid this year.  Maybe it's because of the drought, or maybe it really is just me.

Just a test picture, but it is a weird looking pumpkin!

Since it had gotten below freezing a few times, I have had to bring in my pineapple and rosemary. I  trimmed the pieapple up a little both for looks and convienence.  It was a little big to walk around in the laundry room.  I'm glad I remembered to bring them in.  Last year I managed to kill all my pineapples and rosemary.  Hopefully this year I can keep them happy in the house.  They'll appreciate it next spring.

Habanero Jelly

Well,I finally have a moment to post something, and here it is. I got my first batch of habanero jelly made! I will make another this evening with apple cider vinegar. I made several batches of jalapeño jelly last week and I will get pics of that posted later.

I have not (and will not) try the habanero. Jeff says it's hot and sweet, like me! What a suck up! Anyway, the jalapeño strawberry jam is awesome, like him! Ugh, enough of that.

Hiatus Over

Well, it's been awhile, and I have several things to post. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to get some pics up while I get some work done.

In the past couple of weeks I have picked over 50 pounds of peppers. They have been frozen, smoked, and turned into jelly and jam. More to be made tomorrow along with some bison stock. I don't really need more bison stock, but I do need the freezer space!
