O.K., already! I know, I know. There is work to do, lots of it!
It seems it is taking a bit longer to recharge lately. I'm thanking God for a small reprieve from all of the heat and exhaustion.
Now, there is obviously plenty to keep my hands from being idle for the next couple of days.
There are jars to fill!
The Tree-Ripe Citrus truck was here yesterday for a mere one and a half hours. Last year was the first time I bought their produce and it will not be the last. Just look at the goodies after this bit of free advertising.
Fresh picked Georgia Peaches 2 3/4 " and up, as big as my large hand will be canned for winter pleasure, and made into jams and tarts.
Plump, quarter-sized Michigan Blueberries to freeze and make jams, cobblers and pies.
Already, we devoured the sweet flavor of a Peach n' Blueberry Tart.
Ya Unt Sum?
And, among all the work of this week, includes chasing buzzards. Do you see him circling the fresh cut hay that needs baling.
Seeing the hay lying there is bittersweet for me. We used to do this work ourselves when we had a small hobby farm. Allowing the neighbors to feed this lot to their cattle, at least allows us the sweet scent of fresh mowed hay.
Besides all of the canning, there are weeds waiting in the gardens, to be pulled and composted.
Enough jabbering on and on about nothing important to anyone but myself. Needless to say, I have work to do, so off I go on my merry way.
Have a most wonderful day profiting from the simpler things in life.
