Bought two bags of cranberries at the market Monday; then found more in the freezer. Which asks the question, what do I do with three pounds plus of cranberries? Was not up for plain cranberry sauce, so I Googled a look around for Cranberry Chutney. Oh my! Ask and ye shall receive. Finally decided to look closely at David Lebovitz's recipe, which of course I altered.

Realized last night that I never brought in the bamboo that sits in the top of the pond filter. I'll bring it in this morning and see if I can save it. It's not too much of a problem as I have three pots of cuttings. It is not in my nature to toss a cutting or shoot!
Toes crossed everyone has a great week end.
As always, stay safe, and thanks for stopping by...............*s*

This is the very first pot I ever made, way back in 1965. Only potted for about six months before life got in the way. Twenty years later I did a beginner class because the professor I had intended to return to uni to work with was on sabbatical. (Knew I had to do something as Proge was going away for high school.)
The eeriest thing was that as soon as I put my hands n clay my body remembered how to center and pull up. A lot of really bad pots followed! Within two weeks I was wondering why I ever stopped,
Through all the ups and downs of my life, I always kept this first pot. Guess it was trying to tell me something.
As always, stay safe, and thanks for stopping by………….*s*
P.S. Blogger is still giving me grief about replying to comments. Please know that I read and enjoy them all……………*s*

My aloe farm:
Two years ago my first aloe had babies. So I carefully potted them up. Then my original plant got so unwieldy that I cut it off, trimmed it down and gave it a new pot. I forgot about the stump until it started sprouting new growth. Originally there were five; one fell off so it too got a new pot. This summer what were the original five baby plants became too rambunctious so they each got a trimming and repotting. There were also new babies which I potted up. I stuck all the old stumps in a large pot…..just because.
The upshot is That I now have an aloe plantation. I will probably move some of them to my bedroom when I bring more plants in.
We’ll see, grasshopper…….we’ll see……..
As always stay safe, and thanks for stopping by………..*s*
