All The Fun I Can Stand

I saw on Twitter the other day, someone was going to pass out at an ag conference the bumper sticker/vinyl cling that claimed:

I’M HOT.  I’M DIRTY.  I FARM.

It made me giggle.

Well, today I came up with my own version.

I’M HOT.  I’M SWEATY.  I’M STICKY.  I CAN.

Can.  As in canning… preserving… ok.  I guess if I have to explain it, it’s not quite so funny.

But that was my day.

I bought 26# of Whitney Crab Apples… why?  because I wanted a lot of jelly.

Yup.

Got it.

17 pints.

And there’s still apples in the box!

But one of my batches, I did try something new… I made Caramel Apple Jelly, which smells just fantabulous!  Vernon said it tasted good, so, YAY!

This was my view for most of the day…

Then I took all of the peels and smashed apple pieces and mashed them more to make apple butter.

But I’m saving that for morning.

I’ve had all the fun I can stand for one day.
