Sunday in Pictures


I've been slackin' on my bloggin' because..........
I've been canning up a storm!
Thur. I had to go to Door County with Butsch to help support the
Lions Club Antique Show in Fish Creek.  (100 % of the proceeds after
expenses went to Leader Dogs For The Blind.)  Just so happens the
cherries were ripe.  Door County's nickname is Cherryland.
I canned cherries and.,....








Guess what else I made.
Yes...it's made with (tart) cherries.

Cherry Bounce!
Here's the recipe (at the end of the post).










Second year in a row at a very sad attempt to make
a garlic braid.  One of these days I just have to take the
 time to google how to do it!  I had to dig the garlic because
if they dried up all the way, I'd never find them in all the weeds!













Look how well my cauliflower is growing!!

(I honestly have no recollection of planting kohlrabi -- but I must have :-)
I thought it was cauliflower until just the other day LOL!)








My Mammoth Sunflowers took a beating in the
60 mile/hr. straight line winds that we had with
a thunderstorm yesterday.  The corn stayed up though!
Sure wish I could pack some rain up and send it out west
to all of you struggling with your gardens!


                                                      .....praying for rain out west.

Love the canned cherries! I bet they will be delicious this winter, and they look so pretty in the jars.

Mama Pea said...

You gave me serious cherry envy. Your jars look wonderful! I do love homemade cherry pie! I also have a great recipe for a cherry cake-like dessert served with cherry sauce over the top. Yup, I do like cherries.

I did the same thing with kohlrabi last fall; thought it was cauliflower- how funny!

Texwisgirl ...I will have to try raw kohlrabi and salt...never had that before.

Candy c. and Rox....Your Cherry Bounce should be "cooking", lol!

Debbie and Mama Pea....aren't the cherries pretty canned? Almost too pretty to eat. Hopefully the one I pulled for my fair entry gets 1st place! My son likes a chocolate-cherry cake for his birthday every year. I'll have to try a cherry sauce instead of frosting!

Michele....I am so glad you shared that with me!! I laughed out loud! They do look alike in the beginning don't they!

Also, I think your braided garlic looks just fine! I just used the last of mine from last year. This year I have more - double or triple.

Those cheeries are so pretty all canned up. I love cherries. I haven't seen cherry tree around here forever. I thought you might be trying to trick me on the cauliflower; what is that, I thought? Debi

I like your garlic braid!! I'd call it a 'rustic' look. Everyone's posting food...makin' me hungry! Your cherries look delicious.

gtyyup said...

Your garlic braid is great!! I'd just call it 'rustic'! And those cherries...yum!
