What I've Been Up To

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be doing so well at the Farmer's Market!!! I just cannot keep up with orders! My first week, I sold 30 jars of jellies and pickles. Last week, I sold over 60 jars of jellies and pickles! On top of all this, I am selling assorted baked goods.

This weekend, my grandmother's brother came up from Georgia and brought me a bushel and half of peaches (75 lbs.) Saturday afternoon, I peeled, sliced, and froze peaches until I was so sticky that I needed a bath! I have never seen peaches so big in all of my life!
With the peaches, I plan on making peach jelly, peach topping, peach muffins, peach cobbler, and peach fried pies. Peaches, peaches, peaches!
Also on Saturday, I got 2 bushels (80 lbs.) of cucumbers to pickle. I got through about 60 lbs. of them. I already have 144 jars of pickles!! My white shirt that I had on yesterday has been yellowed and my old tablecloth is now a pretty yellow!

I am so tried after this weekend! I got a charlie horse last night and my leg is killing me. I still have lots of work to do!! I need to make up some more jelly, baked goods, and cobblers. No matter how busy I have have been, I am making sure to spend ample time with the girls! We have a movie to finish this evening!
