I give thanks.
Final got the light just right with my iPad. The colours this year have been and are stunning.
There’s been a flurry of activity in the kitchen this week. Corn relish, sweet and sour sauce, and stewed tomatoes are beginning to line the shelves.
The bottom jar has powdered tomato skins to be used in soups etc. The peels were in the dehydrator over night and then into the blender. I’m really happy with the outcome. One more item, although small, kept out of the garbage or compost.
Bottom line: try to use as much of a product as possible. You know the old saying, “waste not, want not”.

Well, it’s definitely allergy season. Last evening I spent time in the garden. This morning my allergies have kicked into high gear. Perhaps the day will be slower than yesterday but I will embrace it none-the-less.
