Updates, Updates and more Updates

What a week it has been for phone calling here in Montana. I have spoken with Red A, Kevlar, Stoney/Rye, and Hannibal. Hell, I called up J-Ho just to see if he would answer his phone (word to the wise, he still doesn't). Here are the relevant news topics covered:

Hannibal is coming up for a weekend of camping and hiking over labor day. He is concerned about reserving a campsite. (note, it's Monfuckingtana! we got woods, plenty of 'em!).

Kevlar is moving home to a Halifax pier. He is concerned about reserving a plane ticket. (note, they fly daily).

Stoney is working in a town that boasts the world's longest covered bridge. He is concerned about reserving dinner at the fair.
Red A is in Yellowstone on a Taiwanese bus tour of the American west (two thousand miles, four parks, five days). He is concerned about reserving a spot up front to see Old Faithful.

I, on the otherhand, have been preserving. Flathead Cherry/Neighbor's yard Rhubarb (below left), Jalepeno/Pineapple, Strawberry Rhubarb, and Mixed Berry (huckleberries, blackberries, strawberries with a hint of pineapple). Post jamming festivities also featured for anyone interested (over under is one, below right).




















We actually made three different types of cherry rhubarb jam in an attempt to find out the proper ratios. They have all set nicely, so I guess the only thing left to do is try them out to find out how much rhubarb is necessary to tarten up a cherry jam.
