County Fair Winners

Some of you know that I let my great niece and nephews help in the garden, and that I help them with their annual county fair entries.

This year Noah entered herbs, he had basil, dill, cilantro, parsley and sage. His sister, Savannah, entered rhubarb. They each got 4 H ribbons. All 4H entries get ribbons, but they're proud just the same:

Dylan and I made root beer jelly for his entry. (Yes, that's my fencing assistant and general all round farm hand) He won a blue ribbon, first prize for jellies in his age group!

Amanda entered a rhubarb pie, using Grandma's recipe. Another blue ribbon for pies and a Grand Champion ribbon for baked goods:

A successful year, altogether!

With or without the ribbons they'd all be winners. You have a clan there, Annie.

I admire the work ethic and determination of your family. So many kids today are caught up in what they want, not what they can do. Yours demonstates such positive influences.

Well Done! Annie, I know you're proud, as you well should be.

Are you SURE you want that recipe, Jessica? It's root beer, sugar, lemon and SureJell. It tastes just like root beer and the kids eat it on toast. It might be OK in thumbprint cookies, I suppose, and it was unique. LOL

I'm telling you, teotiki, that kid can outwork at least half of the grown men in the family, and wear me into the ground. He'll work all day for $5 and be happy for the company, especially if he gets to drive something.

Their father is useless and their mother is gone, but the kids are still pretty good.

Ohmigosh, Annie! What terrific achievements! I'm sure they are proud! I agree, it is so nice to see kids doing something other than TV! All the kids are very sweet-looking...but I love Savannah"s eyes. And, wow! Amanda gets prettier by the minute. Every picture I see of her is prettier than the last!
