Yesterday I went out to take care of the garden, and I thought maybe I would have about six ripe tomatoes. I picked tomatoes for thirty minutes so I knew the plans I had for yesterday were going to be put aside for making more spaghetti sauce.
After the cooking down and putting through the food mill I ended up with one huge pot of sauce.
I feel like I am getting ready for winter.
Here is my pantry this morning.
I did manage to make a peach pie yesterday. I went out to get the mail and I had a few ripe peaches so I picked enough for pie and made that while my spaghetti sauce was in the water bath canner. I don't like to leave it boiling on the stove so making a peach pie gave me something to do. Really it was because I knew if I sat down it would hurt too much to have to get up so I stayed on my feet.
Of course, still working on my rug. I did manage to get most of my unfinished rugs bound. I have one tiny one left. Life still manages to be life. On my list of things I wanted to get done is still getting my bed room painted. I just don't think that is going to happen this summer. August is around the corner so that means getting windows washed and my neglected flowerbeds ready for fall too. Its still over a hundred here every day. The game cam said one day out in the pasture it reached 134. It was in full sun but even at hundred and twenty that is still hot to be out in it and I am most of the day trying to keep my garden and my hens alive.
I just wanted to check in and show you the things going on. Its been a nice summer all in all. I hope yours has been nice too.
Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. Its always nice to know you are out there and having a nice summer too.
