With me...Without Me

The cows were out grazing in the field this morning and
I had to snap a picture of this bucolic scene.
Simply beautiful, fresh, open air
and clean, green grass. 
Do you know the source of your milk?  If not, you might want to do some research.

Little Apple Jelly Gems

Tiny Little Jars of Tasty Apple Jelly
They are so pretty and cute, but I forgot to splash vinegar into the water bath canner so I will have to clean off the mineral film from the outside of the jars.  Nevertheless, I love the way they look.

I can't wait to sample some.

A Snob is Born

Son #2:  "Do we have any carrots I could munch on?"

Freshly Pulled Home Grow Carrots
Hubby opens door and hands him a bag of carrots (which have been in the produce drawer for some time now).

Son #2:  "EEWWW - those are nasty.  They burn my tongue.  I want the carrots from our garden.

Hubby retrieves a lone garden carrot from the produce drawer, hands it to his progeny and returns the three reject carrots to the produce drawer.
Son #2:  "Yeah - that's what I wanted."

Yes folks, my sons are now food snobs who turn up their noses at store-bought carrots, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, and lettuce.  They can easily tell firm, yet succulent grass fed beef and free-range chickens from their pale spongy counterparts.

Thank you God.

P.S.  Store-bought carrots really do burn your tongue.
