#25 and #73! Check and Check!

So if you follow our blog, you know that I am working to complete my 101 in 1001 list!  Well - this weekend, I checked off two of those things! First, #73 - To make Jelly from something that I picked myself!  Daryl's mom, Sharon, and I went Friday to pick some fresh plums for the yummy jelly that she makes! She's pretty amazing at this kinda stuff so I knew she would be the one to show me the ropes! And here is how it went! 

These trees were dripping with beautiful yellow plums! Doesn't it look like an orange tree!?

We cut the plums up and cooked them up according to the recipe...

and then....the cutest JELLY you will see today! :)

We also picked blueberries! (Number #25 on the list!) They were huge and beautiful!

And this is what Scout looks like when she is begging for blueberries. It's pitiful huh?
