I thought it would be fun to post some pretty pictures from around the “ranch”. I love the colors of fall!
While wandering around the yard today, we picked a bushel of apples from the trees. I have done nothing to the trees at all so they are not pretty looking. I am hoping to get enough to at least make an apple treat and maybe some applesauce. We picked a bucketful of beautiful little, but the biggest ones on our property, to make some crab-apple jelly. I seem to recall my mom making that when we were little so I thought I would maybe try it.
I also found the rose hips are in abundance this year! I will pick them after we get a good hard frost and dehydrate them. I used them last winter in tea for anyone who might be getting sick and it seemed to help. They are loaded with vitamin C.
Lastly, I have TONS of grapes on the vines at the old house. I will pick them in the next week or so to make grape jam and juice. YUM!! Concord grapes make the BEST jam!
Enjoy the pictures.
