How many jars of wine do you make?
Hi Melinda! It’s done in big buckets first, and then bottles in wine bottles, but year over year it can depend on what there was extra fruit of. Most years rhubarb is the staple as there is ALWAYS lots of rhubarb, and from that recipe alone I would say probably 20 or so bottles. Then other varieties come after that 🙂
I love Rhubarb pie!!!!! I haven’t heard of Rhubarb wine, that’s interesting.
if you can find it, its definitely worth a try. its like a dry white wine but a bit sweeter. https://www.rhubarb-central.com/wines-rhubarb-wine-recipe.html
A wonderful visual experience.
I wish I could see the comet xx
I will admit it was neat to see it in the sky on its trip around the solar system.
I think by the time the clouds clear up it will be too late!
Great pics!!!! Great life!!!!! 💙
Thank you Patty! I am glad you enjoyed seeing a bit of how things grow around here 🙂 I hope you are keeping well!
Beautiful pottery ; dazzling ocean and harvesting of natural green petals all awesome
Thank you Brij! I hope you are keeping safe and well

We are blessed to have night skies in our lives, aren’t we?
Yes, very much so ❤
Looks like you had a great week!
It was yes! it was now a few weeks ago that I am responding to this, but I admit it was a lovely week on reflection as well. I hope you are keeping well, Michael!
Good evening, it feels good to have a look at these photos, especially the first one, after a long working day. Thank you for sharing them. I would like to thank you as well for liking my 100th pearl “Spotlight of Fame Pearl 💡💚”. It meant so much to me. Have a lovely evening 🌸
Your photos are beautiful. Thank you!
Thank you, I am happy to hear that they resonated with you and I hope you are keeping well.
Very nice! Enjoyed your photos & enjoying my weekend! <3
Wonderful on both fronts! I hope the one coming up is great as well!
I nominated you for a Sunshine Blogger Award! Feel free to not participate if it’s not your thing. https://josezajama.wordpress.com/2020/07/26/sunshine-blogger-award/
the ocean view on the Bay of Fundy is superb.
It is a lovely spot to be sure! We definitely enjoy going for a visit to that part of Nova Scotia. Thank you for your comment, Patrick!
I’ll have to try and visit one day! 🙂
You take such beautiful photos.
Thank you Angela! I am learning a bit more about it each time I do it.
Gorgeous photos. Did you actually get to see the comet?
Thank you! Yes it is actually in the photo 🙂
Beautiful pics! I just love losing myself in them
What a lovely comment! Thank you for sharing that with me! I hope you are keeping well
You’re very welcome! sorry for the delay response. Stay safe!
Great pics and lucky you got to see the comet!
Absolutely lucky, and grateful for the opportunity.
Nova Scotia is on my bucket list! I’m a Grant/McGregor from Nova Scotia generations ago.
Very cool! I hope you will be able to come visit once the pandemic settles down: https://rakupottery.ca/2020/07/11/stay-home-for-now-but-enjoy-the-view/
Wonderful photos, and I love the starry sky.
We are very lucky to be able to see it here. I am grateful.
I’m a little jealous about the comet! Great pics.
We were lucky the evening was cloudless! We are near the ocean so the fog can roll in at any time! Thank you for your kind comment and I hope you are keeping well.
I can feel the creative spirit and peace of your beautiful home!
Thank you! That is wonderful to hear, we would like to give more of that to the world from our little slice here. I am glad to hear it came through for you from these pictures and I hope you are keeping well in this difficult time
You could actually see neowise? I’m jealous. And out of curiosity- what is haskap? Nice pics 👌
We could yes! It is the blurry line in the photo here in the bottom third: https://i2.wp.com/rakupottery.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/photo_2020-07-25_19-20-191.jpg?w=675&ssl=1
A haskap is a berry that tastes like a mix between a blueberry and a raspberry and they are very plentiful and delicious: https://haskap.ca/about-haskap/
I couldn’t see squat from my place (to much light pollution) And Mom couldn’t make out anything way out in the country side. And that Hasksap sounds interesting- and tasty 😋
Congrats on catching the comet on camera! I’m still trying to spot it with binoculars. 😊
Did you have any luck with your binoculars? I hope you were able to see it as well!
Sadly, I couldn’t spot anything with my binoculars. I suspect that might have been due to a tree blocking part of the sky, not a failure on the binoculars’ part.
I haven’t been able to check out neowise.. I’m jealous…
It was lovely to see, thought hard to not ready it as Neowsie. It kept making me think of cats, but that may be his fault: https://rakupottery.ca/2020/07/02/cat-magnets/
I couldn’t stay up late enough to get a good view. 🥺
Maybe next time.. lol
Youll have to stay up REAL late for next time 😉
I think I can make it!
Trees blocked my view at the early visible hours and I missed it. I’ll likely get to see the great conjunction this year though.
So beautiful 😍
Thank you! I am so glad to hear that they resonated with you and I hope you are keeping well!
Beautiful and exquisite. Anand Bose from Kerala
Thank you, Anand! I am glad you like them and hope you are keeping well in Kerala (or wherever you may find yourself today!)
These are lovely photos. The composition and colors are just stunning.
Thank you for your kind words, Michelle! I hope you are keeping well
Beautiful jars!! And other pictures

Of course! 🙂 thank you!
Thank you 🙂
