Today, I went up to the store to check out the boys and see if anything was happening that I need to know about. They had no news but did share how to catch raccoons. We are having raccoons raiding the corn crop. They told me to get a barrel cut off the top. Place a board leading up to the barrel opening and place some kind of stinky food inside. The raccoon will then climb along the board and fall into the barrel. They would then be stuck. So there you go … instant raccoon trap.
This week, I am working with the American Cancer Society in collecting in our neighborhood. You might receive a letter from me asking for a contribution. Please note that the contribution does not come to me but goes directly to the American Caner Society. I know that we are in a recession, but anything you can contribute will help this worthy cause.
Tom and I want to thank Rodney and Jennifer Caudle for letting us pick pears at their place. We put up 12 pints of pear jam. This is a recipe that I got from Annie Lou Dickerson. Annie Lou, I will be bringing some by for you real soon.
Our garden is not doing well when it comes to peas and okra. Anyone have some that they would like to share? Just call — we will pick. We might be able to barter with tomatoes. There is a five gallon bucket of tomatoes sitting by my back door. I may be making some salsa by Friday. Anyone have a good recipe for salsa?
There is a lot of hay being cut around here. Hope everyone gets some hay because it looks like the rain has stopped.
