New Picket Fence

Hey, y'all!  I was so happy to have the picket fence sections replaced.  Yes, I know we must be rich right?  The cost of lumber these days makes one jump not step back!  But, this has been a long time coming.  We had to make a decision about the thing. Were we going to let it fall down one picket at a time or were we finally going to replace it? 

This was done in July.  We are letting it dry out before priming and painting.  I can't wait to see the finished project.  For now, it is a work in progress.

If you know me you already know I love strawberries. Today I'm talking about what you can do if you love jam the season is over in your area and you haven't made jam!  

I've found a number of ways to do things from home.  It is truly amazing what you can do from home these days. 

Today making jam when you've missed the strawberry picking time and for the first time in years have no strawberry jam!
