Homeschooling, farm life and our love of earth

The last of our candlemas celebrations was a harvest.

We collected all of the fallen granadillas in the garden while Oliver harvested the green ones... I asked him to leave them till purple but he felt the green ones were special. I let him continue while considering that the green ones will be higher in pectin and could help the jam set.

Look at the beautiful boiling jam making a C for Candlemas - LOL

Oh the colour of glorious sun!

Bottles ready for gifts [and for eating!]

We painted a wet on wet painting of the yellow sun shining down and drying the wheat into a golden yellow. Tomorrow we cut up the paintings and make jam jar labels.
