Monday afternoon my mail lady showed up at my door with this.
I pulled all the leaves off, brought it in the house, and set it in the sink in water. Her only request is that I can some Rhubarb Chutney for her. She said she was out and needed it for topping roasts. Certainly I would make it. Rhubarb at my usual place to buy is now $2.00 a pound and more in the grocery store.
On Tuesday I went shopping for the makings plus my usual Sam’s Club haul. That night I cleaned and chop the rhubarb and came up with 26 cups (part of which I froze for jam when the fruit comes in).
Today I picked up the items I couldn’t get at Sam’s so tomorrow morning I’ll start canning.
Jay went with me to Vg’s to shop to today. He took one of those motorized carts around. Now he hasn’t been in a grocery store in several months so there was a lot he stopped to look at. I must say the people who work there are most helpful. When I pulled up in front one of the workers help me get Jay onto cart and on his way while I parked. When we came out another person who was bringing out my groceries for me help Jay out of the cart and into the truck–then he loaded my groceries for me.
Out in front of the house—
Well I’m working on the bells on the lap robe right now but that will be put aside until the chutney is done.
Enjoy this beautiful weather and fill them lungs with fresh air!
