It’s 11 p.m. – what are you doing?

I’m canning.  Yes, I’ve been canning for the past hour.  I found some great plums today and couldn’t let them go to waste.  They were, or are, Italian plums.  Very petit and tasty.  I’ve mixed them with what I have in the house – a little less sugar that needed (about 13 cups), some grapefruit juice (as I don’t have any lemon), and some cinnamon.  I’ve sampled.  It could be delicious.

I also, in my down time, during boiling and such, ordered 8 raspberry plants.  I’ll be the first to admit I haven’t had the best luck with mail-order raspberry plants.  But today is a new day, and yesterday is the past.  Or something like that.  They will be trellised, lovingly fertilized, and watered like we’re in the Sahara.  As an aside, I learned that my newly planted hydrangeas love it if I leave a dripping hose on them for hours.  My well may dry up, but I’ll have 5 foot bushes before you know it!

And so, you can see, I’m canning and simultaneously ordering plants that will produce fruits which I will probably can next year.  It’s a circle of life kind of thing!  And now it’s time for me to go to bed.  Goodnight Auggie.  Goodnight Wally.  Goodnight Donnie.  Goodnight Bob Evans.  Goodnight Orchard House.
