Summer days…

flowers

Everywhere I turn it seems that there is another beautiful summer scene. This was one of them.

When not baking or selling granola, or outside in the garden or caring for the animals I have been inside processing garden and foraged food. Yesterday I froze 3 pounds of broccoli, 6 jars of dilly beans, 7 jars of cherry jam, 1 jar of cherry syrup, 3 jars of cucumber pickles, and froze a huge tray of raspberries that I picked that morning with a friend.

Here are the dilly beans being assembled, and below is the beginning of what turned out to be amazing cherry jam…

One thing about canning though…

…it is a very hot thing to do in the summer, however, admiring the cans on the shelf is worth every bit of sweat equity that goes into it!
