The last couple of nights we have had storms. Rain, hail, winds. My vegetable garden is ruined, my hostas look like they were chewed up, most of the apricots on 2 trees were ruined. I am ready for just some light nice rains and no more storms!

My party is over and everyone had fun. Had a couple that didn't make it. I made a batch of salsa and and 2 batches of pepper jelly the weekend before, so I would have cooled jars to hand out to guests. Then for the party we canned salsa. I prepped half the ingredients ahead of time, to make it go easier at the party. This time I ended up with 19 jars of salsa. While the salsa was processing, I served Chips and Salsa, Pepper Jelly over Cream Cheese with Crackers and Margaritas. Along with their goodie bags everyone got to pick an extra item (measuring cups/spoons, spatulas, wooden spoons), each got 2 jars of salsa and 2 jars of pepper jelly to take home. Then I had a drawing for the Ball Preserving Book. They all were impressed with the Ball products.
