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.
