I've had this photo for ages and it's always made me smile.
This young lady's been working hard alongside Mom and is rightfully proud of her efforts!
That's the goal for our pantry...and while it may not end up looking exactly like this one, the temperatures are 20 degrees cooler this week making it perfect for "putting things by"
as Grandma would say. I'm canning pizza and spaghetti sauces, pickles, beans, and peppers. The onions are ready to braid and hang, and herbs are ready to dry. Before we know it, we'll be digging potatoes.
Isn't it interesting that we all seem to get spring fever, but so many of us also have a fever in early fall? I once heard this described as a season between earnest nesting and flagrant wanderlust. It's that need be plan ahead for the frosty days sure to come, but to also enjoy the lingering summer days.
Hmmm, today I'm prudent...
next week I may just take a jaunt to Amish country!
So, how are you spending these days that are teetering somewhere between summer and fall?
