Maybe I will get something done today? Yesterday sure was a lazy day. I sat out on the porch enjoying the low 70’s reading a book, drinking coffee. Later I was down at the garden picking big fat green caterpillar’s off the tomato plants! Those things sure do move in quickly if you don’t keep a watch out. The tomatoes are winding down and not a lot left on them but I still might collect up enough for more sauce. I did pull two plants out and put them on the pile of brush that will be burnt but I still have about 8 plants left.
I did get 7 half pints of strawberry/rhubarb butter from Friday’s work. The strawberries of course are out of season here already – I used frozen sliced berries for my jam and the rhubarb was brought to me by our daughter when she visited last month and that was frozen too.
They are now on the shelf with the sauce – I’m beginning to run out of room on this one – as you can tell I do not do enough of this to survive a winter without the near by grocery store LOL – this is just for fun. I plan to make applesauce and apple butter still when apples come in. My one little apple tree did not fair well this year – it had a dozen apples on it but I’m afraid the moth worms got to them – I will need to treat the tree next spring before the blossoms open. Do you do any canning or freezing?
All I have to show for sewing is this row of hexies that I am working on – I probably finished that row last night after I wrote this post up and working on two more to join it. When I get done with a row I lay it out on the floor like this and then lay out another row – take photos and stack it up with a long pin through it to keep them in order – I do get off track sometimes and get mixed up anyhow but it usually works out in the end. Sometimes instead of a long row I will just start adding hexies one by one. I will be linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy’s Quilts when I get up. Also linking up to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework .
