Tonight I walked around the farm.
This picture makes me very very excited........you know why? Because it means fresh
HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY/RHUBARB JAM.
I noticed the other day that I had some little nubs coming up and today I noticed all over the patch the baby rhubarbs are coming up....... everywhere. Our family just loves this jam with scones. I have posted the scones and recipe before, but I will do it again for some of you who are new.
Click and you will get the printable recipe.
I found the Strawberry and Rhubarb Jam recipe here on this blog sometime back. It is our favorite jam.
You are going to start seeing rhubarb at the Farmer's Markets in the next few months. This really is a nummy jam so be sure to pick some up. Also it is very easy to grow if you want to try it.
My Mother in love always made the best whipped cream! Instead of using granulated sugar........ she used powder sugar instead. You will never go back to the other once you try it.
Here is an idea for a gift....I posted about last year....thought I would do it again, because I have more ladies following.
You can print out the Coffeehouse Scone recipe and make a tag. It is so nice to take a little gift, if you have been invited somewhere and this one is real easy to make.
Sift dry ingredients using a sifter.
Sift onto waxed paper.
Put dry ingredients into a cellophane bag and tie with twine. This will slip perfectly into your little bag. If you give this as a gift, you will need to tell them that they will have to add 1/2 cup butter, 2/3 cup buttermilk.
Cut a piece of fabric 15" wide x 11" tall.
Make a double seam at the top of fabric and sew across the full 15".
Fold fabric from side to side. Sew sides and bottom.
Box the corners of both sides of bag. Draw a 1" line from point. Sew across corners.
Using pinking shears cut off excess. Turn the bag inside out. Place mixture inside and tie with a ribbon.
Cut a 7 1/2" circle of coordinating fabric for the cap of the jam, pink the edges. Place over
jam and tie in place with a ribbon.
Simple but a sweet gift.
I thought I would also show how I planted the snow peas and sweet peas together it is so very simple to do.
The snow pea will have a white flower, but the sweet peas will have lots of pretty colors. As you watch me garden you will see that I also like to put flowers all through out my garden. I love color!
Snow Peas and Sweet Peas
Plant 2" deep and 2" apart.
Here are the panels that I use for our peas, bush beans and tomatoes. A friend gave them to us free and they have been very useful on our farm for gardening. I also use these for our cucumber (pickle) plants. They work great. Notice the paper on the ground. That is from last year. When we go to work the ground the straw and the paper will deteriorate and make the ground better each year.
Well hope you had a nice day.......mine was busy working on an order this evening. Calms me.
Hugs and thank you for stopping by today.

Do you see the little egg tooth. The other eggs in the incubator didn't do anything. I am waiting on the duck. Maybe tomorrow or thursday. I will try some more eggs in a few weeks.
