Summer kitchen



I can't believe that my last post was a week ago. This week just flew by to be honest and I am wondering where time went. I was feeling slightly unwell towards the end of the week, feeling that a cold might be coming and taking steps to prevent this, including going to bed early. The week was foggy, cold and rainy, typical fall weather but it picked up again this weekend. I spend the weekend catching up on things in the garden, harvesting more cucumbers and tomatoes, froze another batch of apples and spend some time making beautiful tomato sauce a la Soulemama . I tried her recipe last year and loved it, so obviously I had to make it again this year. Some of the sauce did not make it into the jars but the first three jars have been canned and stored for winter. With the amount of tomatoes that I have, I can can a batch each week, which is gonna make me real happy. The first batches of apples sauce are stored away too but I also froze some and made an apple pie from the fresh august apples.
Life is good right now, I am grateful for all that the garden is producing at the moment.
