Squash Pickles and Blackberry Jam

Good Monday Morning! Sunday afternoon was soooo relaxing I finished reading another short-story and took a nap....late evening after it had cooled off...picked blackberries and yellow squash. Today will be spent straightening the house, doing laundry, making blackberry jam and yellow squash pickles. I really enjoy the whole harvesting and canning the summer time fruits and veggies.
Oh I almost forgot...tonight is the last Nashville Star! Gooooooooooooo Melissa Lawson! I so hope she wins.
Have a great day!

Thank you so much for posting on our blog! I loved reading yours! I hope you don't mind if I add you to one of our favorites! I think Melissa will get it don't you??? What is funny is Rick, her husband, is going to put a new roof on our house Friday. Life goes on right? Have a great week and so nice to meet you! Tammie (Make Me a Memory)

I love squash! I need to get over to my grandparents and steal some!

Our blackberries were so late and then they finished up really fast! I wanted to go for a second picking at my Pap's and it was too late! :(

Have a great day!

I am planning on making blackberry jam soon too...hopefully! I have never made it before. Is it difficult? I have made strawberry freezer jam and grape jelly before! :)
