12 Month Meme

I’ve decided to post the first post of each month for the last year, along with the first sentence or two of that post, following Sharon from Casaubon’s Book’s lead.  I’m also going to add in a photo from the post.  It’s a fun look back at 2009, and pretty well-balanced for what I typically post: some animals, some recipes, some wildlife, some garden.

May (Couldn’t choose between these two pictures, so posted both to make up for the lack of one in April)

Strawberry Fruit Leather “I usually make jam instead of jelly because I don’t like wasting all the fruit pulp that’s left after the juice drains.  However, when I made strawberry jelly this time I used the leftover pulp to make fruit leather, and I have to say I was impressed by how easy it was.”

August

  1. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! MAY HAVE TO BORROW IT!

  2. I like this too! I actually started a post like this, but still have to add the photos. I got the idea from my friend Nan’s blog: lettersfromahillfarm.blogspot.com

    Now I see this idea here too, and I’m encouraged to go back to that draft post. Thanks. I love your recap of the year. Nice glimpse of what you’ve been thinking and writing about. :)

  3. You’ve just distilled down in one post why I love this blog :)

  4. Love it! Happy New Year!
