Jelly Battles

Much Jelly has been in the works here about. . .

and a Label has now been designed!

This is just what I happened to picture in my head

when we began this Jelly and Jam extravaganza, and so

I decided on this as our Jelly label for the mixed berry.

My husband was a good sport about it:

We also picked more berries

To make individual flavors instead of mixed only

Red Raspberry Jelly and Jam

soon to be famous Jelly/Jam face

Our son really liking the Jam!



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
