In a Bottle

Jim Croce sang “If I could save time in a bottle…” If you could bottle something, anything, what would it be? Love? Human Understanding? Freedom? Sunshine?

I’d have a hard time making up my mind. It’s between fig preserves and pear preserves. The only thing better on a biscuit than pear preserves is fig preserves. You need both though, so that you can rotate the stock in preserves. I hardly find either in the local mega-marts. I usually make do with honey, which is not a bad life. Luckily I have run across some locally canned fig preserves.

My long term goal is to become self-sufficient in pear and fig preserves. I have plans for a fig tree and a pear tree, and I have a place to put them. As soon as the site is fully prepared I’ll be moving closer to my goal.
