After blogging this morning I was just SO tired. Why? I don't know. But, I woke up at 4 and was ready to continue my day. I decided to start tackling the strawberry jam. I had NO idea what I was doing. But in the pectin packages are instructions for jam. I followed them and got them into jars. I decided to go with shelf jam instead of freezer jam this first time around (although the freezer jam is easier). I had to put it in my pressure cooker/canner. I have never used one before. But guess what... I have shelf strawberry jam now made by me! The lids are even sealed and everything! I am so proud of myself. And, it wasn't that hard.
Next thing on my list, Rillz bought me a composter bin from Costco. Some girls are giddy about nice shoes and purses and all I wanted was this composter bin! I have to wipe the drool from my mouth over this big black rotating piece of plastic! haha. Anyways, Rillz put it together for me tonight.
Isn't she a beauty. Won't be clean for long though
Here is my little sugar snap pea plants so far. They are so cute. Yesterday I planted my herbs. I planted Rosemary, chives, cilantro, and parsley. This gardening thing takes patience. I am like a little kid and want results the next day. I am excited to have the time this summer to do all these outdoor things for my house.
