Making Jam

The River House is located in the middle of a vast farming area.  For miles around you see fields where various crops are being grown.  Some I recognize, some I don't.

Right down the street from us is this fruit and vegetable stand.  So far we've only bought berries from them.  There is a huge strawberry field right behind the stand.  They also have delicious raspberries.

As I mentioned yesterday, we have peach trees.  Three of them.  The peaches are plentiful but pretty small.  I am told that is because the trees haven't been pruned properly.  We will take care of that this fall.

Meanwhile I couldn't resist bringing home some peaches to make jam.  There were also some raspberries we hadn't eaten so I tossed them in as well.  Our first jam from the new house.

Life is sweet!


  1. The jam looks great, enjoy, and may you just have sweet memories in the new house! Hugs, Valerie

  2. How great you have that farmers stand near you!

  3. Just another perk you got when you purchased the lake house. The jam looks really yummy, too!
