Jam Making and Seedling Planting

Yesterday was another beautiful day, full of sunshine gardening and well sun burn (whoops)

First off I was at school in the morning, planting out into the garden with room 9 and room 4 their seedlings into the school garden.
All the kids and parents had a fantastic time in the garden, the classes even had the time to plant a feijoa tree into the orchard each!

Got home at lunchtime and I had that rhubarb jam to make (remember yesterday’s post).
I’ve never made jam before, I have done relishes but not jam …

I don’t think it turned into a complete disaster, I was doing really well until right at the end.
When it burnt to the bottom of the pot.
I managed to save it (I think) and got it all bottled up, some for me, some for Christmas gifts I think!
Turns out rhubarb jam tastes a lot like strawberry jam!

Jam Jam Jam Jam!

Jam Jam Jam Jam!

Today is going to be a chilled out day at home!
