You know, kinda working on my weeds and drooping sunflowers, but mostly taking photos and marveling at the honeybees who continue to work despite the fact that I've gotten all I want out of them, I have a garden loaded with veggies and my neighbors have trees loaded with peaches and pears that I continue to can as fast as they give them to me. Then B said to me "Hey, Sears is having a sale on freezers, and wouldn't it be nice to actually have all of your berries and my meat in our house instead of at the neighbors?"
Which lead to this:
Hello Beautiful, where have you been all my life! And look at how cozy my berries look in your tray
While I patiently waited for my freezer to get cold B and I took a trip up to Baker City for a friend's baby shower. It was a lot of fun. It was outside at friend's Katy and Mitch's place out in the country, and lucky them, their backyard faces the Elkhorn Mountains. We watched as a brief summer storm came through leaving us with pink clouds and a beautiful rainbow. We followed that with a campfire and didn't get home until 1am. I wanted to fill the freezer then but B convinced me I was nuts and I should go to bed, so I did.
Sunday I went to my very farm in the whole world. I swear these people know exactly what I need. I was on a mission to finish my salsa making today and my second crop of tomatillos is not ready, so I went to this lovely place. Please marvel with me at the beautiful colors in these bins!
And then I went home and turned into this :
And I began Making Salsa, Raspberry-Peach Jam, canning peaches, pears and tomatoes and hoarding them away in my pantry, here is a sample of my handy work:
And my day ended with a quick bike ride with this as my backdrop:
