Garden update

Here is the new strawberry bed right after being planted.

The big garden, it needs some weeding, but you can see
small plats in there!

Canning Pomegranate Syrup

I found some 100% pomegranate juice at Aldi recently for 1.49 per 8oz.

I have always wanted to try this and was really hoping that my kids would like it since it is so  healthy.  We all tried a little and all of us decided it wasn't anything we would look forward to drinking.  Darn it.  The next day I was making some ice cream and had the idea of turning some of the juice into syrup and trying it on our ice cream.  Well I wasn't real thrilled with it but the kids really liked it, Success!!  So I took the rest of the juice and turned it into 4 pints of pomegranate syrup.
