Tuesday I picked about 15 more quarts of berries. What I did not turn into jam, I decided I would dehydrate. I washed them, sliced them 1/4 inch thick and layed them on the racks. The racks were stacked on top of each other in the dehydrator, and the controls set for 135 degrees and 9 hours of drying time.

Today my friend Ann and I spent two hours and picked about 15 quarts of strawberries on our farm. I gave several quarts away and with the rest of them made 18 more pints of jam. I can hear the lids popping as I write this! Yummy....homemade strawberry jam to last throughout the coming year.

Now, if I could only sell the aprons and bags that I have made, then I would truly be downsizing. Here are a few pictures of this week's aprons. The first is a reversible laundry apron with large, roomy pockets for clothespins.
The second is just a half apron....one-sided, ruffled...sort of that French Country look.I had a blast using fancy stitches on my embroidery machine to finish this apron.
And Yes, MJ....these are all on my Etsy, now!
This is my favorite. The bottom edge is scalloped and it is reversible. I love its flirty lines and the bright floral print.So, if I never sell any of these aprons, at least I will have the biggest apron wardrobe I know. Perhaps I will have to have an apron closet added to my home!! Otherwise...look out, you just might be receiving an apron for your next important holiday.
