Nothin' Better than Some Homemade Pickled Jalapenos!

Last Sunday I decided to take charge of my huge collection of jalapenos. I cut them all up and pickled them!! I made four pints, which is about 2 pounds worth!. All but one was able to seal. I lowered the three pints of jalapenos into the cistern to accompany the pickled okra and garlic. The one misfit I put in the fridge.

The jars in the cistern will take 3 weeks to cure but I figured the one in the fridge was ready to eat..and boy oh boy are they not good!! I have been eating them with my salads, sandwiches, ice cream (just kidding..but probably would be good!). The recipe called for honey so it gives a little sweet with the hot! it's tastey! They are hot! But that's how I like em!

These are better than ANY store bought jalapenos!
I know the ones in the cistern are gonna be even better. When farmer finishes his assignment, we'll have to open one up for celebration..aiy yai yai!

New Projects!

Farmer and I found this bike, thanks to my friend Annette. There was a H U G E sale of all kinds of vintage bikes in Fort Worth. This little guy picked me to take him home. He was pretty dirty, but in an hour's time he shined up like a new penny.I plan on taking him to Granbury and using him as my "town bike." My other one is more rusty so she's a farm bike.

This here, is a quartermaster iron bed. The pieces were dit dotted around the farm and we were able to find alllll the pieces!! Woo Hoo! I want to fix this li'l guy up to use as a day bed for the side porch. I did a bit of research and it was originally white, but I think we'll keep it rusted (with fungus and all...that sounds bad haha).

I'll show the updated version, just need to buy some new springs and hook it all back together.
