Meanwhile, we worked on some landscaping projects here...which certainly instigated that feeling of rapidly aging. Arrggh! It sure takes longer to get things done as we creep out of our 4th decade. The garden is producing, so we're canning something every few days. We have over 53 pints of beans and at least 2 more pickings before those are done...wow! Blackberry jam and applesauce are on the agenda, along with lots of ears of corn to process and Matt's famous dill pickles! Can't seem to get the tomato production flowing, so once again, we'll only have a few just to eat fresh.
September will bring the start of middle school for Nic, so we'll enjoy a bit more camping before she's back to the books and I'm back to sewing. Lots of shows lined up for this fall, and watch for my new pattern release at the beginning of the month!
