Default The 20th Annual Schaller Ribbon Report

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Wait, that was
LAST year!!

THIS was a good year! I am happy.

Of 19 entries at the Great Minnesota Get-Together, our state fair,
opening today and continuing until Labor Day, I have 7 blue ribbons,
two second place, and three thirds. I will not receive the plaque for
being better at it than anyone else (there's a relative newcomer in
town who kicked a** with 11 first place ribbons) and I'm really happy
with 7 blues! W00t!

So, the blues were for
Blackberry Jelly
Cherry Jelly
Raspberry Jelly
Nectarine Jam
Strawberry Jam
Apricot Butter
Stewed Tomatoes

Second place for
Peach Jam
Watermelon Pickles


Third place for
Strawberry Jelly
Apricot Jam
Cherry Jam

AND the Mrs. Wages (preserving products) Blue Ribbon Award for Best in
Show for Jellies and Jams.

Life has been hard on me the last year -- sibling deaths, good friend
death, declining health of my brother, etc. But, hey, I Am Woman!
Hear me roar! ;-)

You go Girl! Glad to hear from you again and that you're still taking
names and kicking butt.

I've done a little preserving this year but not nearly as much as when
we had the much larger garden and mature fruit trees. Let us hear from
you more often.

That's awesome. My late grandmother took quite a few prizes at the
Minnesota State Fair for her pies and jams, as well as her kolaches.

I have her recipe for kolaches but they never quite turn out as well somehow.

We'll get Tanya Harding to fix that situation for you next year.
Meantime, congrats on a great showing.

I see you're still kicking, too, you old goat. I'm back because I
finally paid for Unison (my reader). LOL! I just kept putting it off.
I've also been wasting too much time at Facebook. I prefer Usenet for
actually learning something, though.

There's the rub. Re the brother I monitor, he's on a one-way path
(psp.org, read it and weep. AFA my siblings dying, that's only going
to increase. Because we aren't a close-knit family and because most
are considerably older than I, and I've always expected to bury all 12
of them, I didn't think it would be as hard emotionally as it is
proving to be. It's a damn good thing I don't believe in divine
retribution otherwise I'd be totally screwed.

Hi, Bob -- what is your late grandmother's name? And did she come by
that interest in kolachky honestly? Slovak or Czech? :-) My People
are from NE Slovakia. AND, you should come visit the Minnesota State
Fair soon. It is the 12 best days of summer, donchaknow.

I look forward to the ribbon report every year, but I'm very

You are correct, Kalmia. In spades. If I still have your email

She was Czech - her clan came to Cedar Rapids about the turn of the
century. I prefer not to name her in order to preserve what precious
little anonymity I have on the Internet (Bob Davis is *NOT* my real
name), but she passed on over thirty years ago.

I haven't been to the Fair in ages. Even though I know there's a lot
going on there, I was really bummed out when they dumped Machinery
Hill! I make my way back about once a year, sometimes every other
year. One of these times I'm sure I'll go back to The Fair!

The result matters, for the love of God! Kool-Aid is as cool as
anything and contributes to the end result, the heavenly Barb's Beety
Beauty - the Jelly of the Stars!

Barb, congrats on the ribbons! I've missed reading your posts since I've been away these last couple of years.

Rather late congratulations, Barb but, way to go, again!
Here it is, evening of Aug. 26/14 and I'm just getting around to
reading your report posted Aug. 21/14.
The last year had been a bit tough for me as well. Somewhat like
yours, a couple of good friends passed on but, the hardest was cancer
taking my baby brother. He was only 74 and in just a few more weeks
I'll be 80 so it really should have been me.
Not doing much preserving this year so far, terrible weather has made
the garden bounty rather sparse.
Gerry and I did manage to build a nice 10'x10' garden shed and did the
whole thing ourselves except for shingling the roof, one of the kids
did that.
Hottest day so far this year was today, 88F with humidity making it
feel like 106F. Predictions are for tomorrow to be about 70F.
Anyway, it's good to see your name on some posts again.
Keep on jammin'.

Ross.

Thanks, Ross. No worries about late congratulations; I'm happy to hear
from you. I did three canning talks at the state fair todaythe first
was taped for a documentary that our local PBS station is making about
the Great Minnesota Get-Together. Lots of fun, interested audiences,
and I rocked them all. I'm not much of a gardener on a good day and my
few plans sucked rope this year. Feh! I'm still waiting to buy
reasonably priced tomatoes for juice, sauce, and stewed-type. And I'm
looking at a case of Colorado peaches that are about ready to work with
and IBePooped!! It was a long day!
