Well unfortunately there is nothing really to report this week. Thanks to mother nature I have lost everything but my garlic. In one week we went from 82 for a high and 50 for the lows to 45 for a high and 25 for a low! The shock was to much, combined with a HUGE dust storm has cost me nearly every plant I have. This week we will be replanting inside so stay tuned for a NEW set of plants. I am excited to get to start my herb garden as well, this week alone nearly 20 plant varieties will be planted!
Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun!

Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix.

The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
