I've been busy this week , on Monday I made six ~ 1/2 pints of blackberry jelly. The blackberries didn't bare well this year , so this is the only batch I'll be making.
Curious J and I are making rosemary flavored red wine vinegar , his dad loves it , so I'll be sending a bottle home with them.

I added some dried moss , cayenne peppers and rosemary to my garlic braid I made last week. It looks so much better although it's still a little lopsided .....
it now hangs in the kitchen with a new wall hanging my sister-in-law gave me last week ( love it ) and a thrift store oil painting of an old barn I found a few years ago. I hope to have a barn like that one day !

I was under the shed yesterday cleaning some garlic and the girls decided I needed their help .............
This is Fern standing in front of the garlic , right before she decided to jump up on my shoulder ................ wonder if she's a parrot in disguise (LOL).
I did get the garlic cleaned , sliced and laid out to dry on an old window screen ( the pic only shows one side ). I plan to make garlic powder , if it dries out well. This is tedious work , so I hope it is worth the trouble , my fingers are sore from peeling so much garlic.
