Canning jam the easy way. Three ingredients is all it takes to make lovely yummy jam. I have never put pectin in any of my jams I let nature take its course.
We also do not like our jam real sweet so I always cut back on the amount of sugar that I use. We like it tarty and the real fruity flavour.
I have never made jam with the fruit that this lady is using. It is not a real abundant fruit in our area it is like a specialty fruit and real expensive. What we do use is strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and lots of wild berries like Saskatoon’s and Huckleberries. We have other wild berries but they are not as readily picked as the others. I have never found the need for adding pectin.
Doing it this way is one of the simplest methods for getting your fruit looked after and stored for the winter months.
Another thing I really like is the no fuss way she explains all the different steps you have to take. Straight and to the point.
Canning Fruit by Making Jam at Home. No Pectin. Simple Recipe.
This is a great project to do with your kids . They would have a fantastic time doing their own eggs.
I always did things special for the holiday and this is something if my children were younger that I would do. It is neat that you can fill them full of surprises.
You will need a mold but there are lots of places where you can pick them up at. We have a craft store and it has every kind of mold going. The bulk food place has every color and flavor of chocolate you can imagine so it should be easy to get the right supplies. And all the different kinds of candies imaginable. I think you would have trouble deciding there are so many varieties.
So I hope everyone has a great Holiday and eats a ton of chocolates. Lol…

Do You Know How To Grow 100 lbs. Of Potatoes In A Box
Well I am going to let you in on this secret. I have been looking at the different ways and I like this one that I have found.
The reason being that I am looking for a way to grow a lot of potatoes in a small area, and in a container that I can work on. With my heath issues kneeling is almost impossible for me. So all my gardening has to be up where I can get at it.
Potatoes like a slightly acidic soil low-pH around 5.0 provides good control of common scab.
Fertilizeryou can use to get a excellent crop is an all-purpose 5-5-5 organic brand.
You plant in one bottom layer, boarding up the sides of each layer and adding dirt as you go higher (you wait until the plants have grown a bit before adding a new layer). While new potatoes are growing in the top layers, remove the boards from the first layer at the bottom to carefully dig out any that are ready for harvesting. Fill the dirt back in and board up the box again. You move up the layers and harvest as they are ready. I imagine the new potatoes in the first couple bottom layers would be somewhat awkward to get at but as you move higher–not so bad.
They say that you can harvest as you go along but I’m not sure I would do that with ours because our climate is cooler and we really only get one real good harvest a year with root crops. So I think it would be a call you would make according to the weather in your area.
There are only two of us so I am sure one box will do us just fine. To bad it wouldn’t work with carrots. I will figure something out.
If we grew a lot of our vegetables in these up right ob ideas we could have quite the crop for our winters harvest.
This will also work real well if you have very limited space like a balcony even you would just need a tray to set it in and the first layer would have more dirt. or you could even us a garbage can and layer it as it grew and do the one time digging like we are going to do. All kinds of ideas.

So I thought I would take a look at some videos by gardeners on growing them and amazingly enough I believe I have solved my problem.
Iam going to be growing tomatoes and cucumbers. My tomatoes did great so I think I have that going for me.
I had a couple squash plants and I believe the same issue was wrong with them as with my cucumbers I only got a few the rest were no pollinated and shriveled up and died. So I know now how to fix that but not sure if I will grow them again. Have to see.
Ifthey are not pollinated this is what they will look like. So if you have them in your green house and they are not producing then you have to pollinate them because there is not enough bees to do the job.
