A Weekend review... Orchard, Canning, & a quick pumpkin craft project..

We had a great weekend..
We went to a different Orchard on Saturday morning that we had never been to before...
it was so nice, and we were able to taste test some amazing fruit!

We came home with 20 lbs of apples and 10 lbs of peaches.. Yum.

We spent a good part of the weekend getting them all canned up..
Apple Pie Filling, Apples, and Peaches. 
(The pantry is getting stocked up)

Our Jalapeno plants are producing LOTS, so I think I will have to can up some jalapeno jelly for the first time ever...  I have actually never even tried jalapeno jelly before.. hopefully it is worth it. :0)
(Have you tried it before? Is it any good?)

While canning I noticed I had several old canning lids laying in a box, and I was trying to think of what to do with them or toss them.. then I remembered seeing someone make a pumpkin/wreaths out of them somewhere. (sorry, but I don't remember where)

So I got out some wire and decided to wire them up and make a pumpkin.

Here it is..

So cute.. I think I will pick up some spray paint though and paint it. :0)

Hope you had a great weekend as well!
