Yesterday I spent the day with my parents at a farmer's market, along the Skagit river.
It was hazy and smoky from the wildfires burning in our area.
It's strange and a worry to have "smoke" be the weather forecast.
A little spinning and knitting as I move back towards more making of things.

Very close to ready to pick.
It's been a couple really busy days...becomes so easy to lose track of time passing.

It seems I have become a fish tank baby-sitter.
The cat is intrigued by the possibilities.
Today I canned 3 jars of roasted tomato sauce, 4 jars of corn relish, 3 jars of pickled cauliflower; loaded up the dehydrator with strawberries, tomatoes and plums and picked the pears.

A rain garden I pass as I go to work.
The sweater I am unraveling so that I can knit it again.

Tonight's salad: butter lettuce + blue cheese + hazelnuts + the scoop of figs that wouldn't fit into the jars that I processed.
Yesterday I canned 3 half-pints of peach jam, 3 jars of tomatillio sauce, 3 jars of figs and 2 half-pints of blackberry jam.
The blog Food in Jars (and her cookbooks) is a wonderful resource for small batch canning, something I find very useful for how I cook.
