Long time, no blog....

Wanna know what we did this weekend? We picked up 2 gallons of blackberries at a roadside stand near us then went back home to process all that berry goodness into blackberry jelly. We got 11 jelly jars and 3 pint jars from 2 gallons of berries...not bad!

Cindy over at asked to see some photos of our dolls. My 6-year-old took this photo of her doll laying on her lavender pillow. I think she's got a good eye for photography! Here you go, Cindy:

I managed to snap a quick photo of a few recent strawberries from the garden before we popped them into our mouths! The girls love these fresh out of the garden.

Here's a shot of our homemade mozzarella. Now I know why these photos always feature some yummy tomatoes as well. Mozzarella is not so visually appealing, but it WAS gooood!

Here's a photo of our homegrown potatoes with some of our dill and scallions. Add a tad of olive oil and you're in business!!

Next time I'll post some shots from the garden!! ;-)

I followed the recipe from Mother Earth news! Here's a link:

You can pick up the specialized ingredients at a Health Food store. It's cool to see the chemical reactions that take place during the process.

I love your little dolls! It is such a cute idea. I'm going to remember that for when my daughter is a little older (she'd probably try to chew on it right now!).

Thanks for posting the link to my blog and to the recipe for mozzarella. I'm going to check that out today.

Also your potatoes sound sooo good!
