Jammin with Miss MollDoll

 These bushes covered in tobacco netting are blueberry bushes. Our blueberry bushes. We have seven of them. We moved into our house 2 years ago and right about now and there were no blueberries (sad face).

Last year we had blueberries, but each morning the birds were up earlier than we were and they ate all of them. No kidding we had about a hand full. THIS year, we got smart and covered them. Holy blueberries Batman. Did we have blueberries. I mean thousands, upon thousands from our seven bushes.

This is what four quarts looks like. The photo is deceiving. This is a large Pyrex bowl filled to overflowing. With this we made two batches of jam and a huge 1.75 liter bottle of blueberry vodka.

Can we get every last bit of this?

 We made both Blueberry-Lemon-Ginger Jam and Blueberry Lavender Jam. 
It is a bit sweet. Next time I will try the no-sugar recipe.
 Here is the blueberry Vodka. It is not looking quite so pretty anymore. Two weeks later and the vodka has sucked the color out of the blueberries. The green is lavender. I sure do hope it tastes good.
I have been so busy..not blogging much, but I do hope to time manage my life and blog more. Today was my first day of school and I think I am going to love it. My professor is a MD. If you know me, you will know that I love that. Learning A&P from a doctor...does not get much better than that. I am so excited and can't stand it. I love to learn, whether it is sewing, fishing, whatever....learning to me is fun.

I also finished a new dress yesterday. I can't wait to show it to you....AND to tell you about my adventure to NYC to finally meet Peter. I was so star struck! I have lots to tell you about. So stay tuned.

  2. Hi Sassy, those Blueberries look so gooood, so does the jam. I have often thought of growing tomatoes but worry about the birds and the squirrels, great idea to cover the Blueberry bush.
