I know, it is getting a bit ridiculous. I am always taking lots of pictures of jars of food! But I just can't get over how pretty they are! I canned almost 25 pounds of tomatoes yesterday. 

Also, take a look at these awesome weeds that I found. I am drying them on our porch to see if they will still look cool. We shall see!

more canning!

Today I canned a whole bunch of peaches! I put a bit of lavender in the syrup and now I can't stop thinking about making lavender peach pie in the middle of winter! I also traded a friend for two kinds of beautiful pickles that she made! Yeah!

And below is the lavender peachy leftover juice/sugar/water that I am currently boiling down to a syrup to put on ice cream! I lit the juice mixture from behind to highlight the color, but the picture makes it look kind of crazy. Like a potion from Hogwarts or something...

Also, I got to paint for a lot of the day today! Hooray!

the seed eaters zine rack is almost ready!

Jeremy and I have been working on this project for quite some time, and we are about ready to stock it with wares and install it at Random Row Books! We are hoping to make a rack for the Bridge, too! Hurray!

canning time!

Nalle Street had a little canning extravaganza today! We canned a whole bunch of tomatoes, tomato sauce (with mushrooms!), and even made some lacto-fermented salsa. Call me a Professional Grandma, but I think canning is probably one of the prettiest, most fun things you can do with produce of all kinds. And it's yummy, too!
