Very Busy Indeed

  So, it seems I still haven’t been able to keep up with my posts.  That’s because I’ve still been busy.  No, not crafting, although I have been working on my Project 30 quilt (hopefully it will be done this week Samantha!).  I have been making weekly (and sometimes bi-weekly trips to the farmer’s market.  I was hoping to buy a bunch of veggies to can, but don’t quite trust my skills yet.  So some of theses goodies were put in the freezer.  And some were eaten.

But those peaches got made into this!  Peach Butter!  My first time canning by myself ever!  And it’s delicious.

I decided to go back and get more peaches, but don’t you know it in the middle of canning the power when out from one of those delightful summer thunderstorms.  When I tried to start up again, I scorched the peaches.  Did I mention that my first attempt was with a basket so I decided to try a bushel.  Yes.  I scorched a bushel of peaches.  So, I picked up some more Saturday.  Hopefully, this next back will turn out as good as the first.  So if you don’t hear from me for a while, it’s because I’m knee deep in peaches!
