Back in the groove

Now that summer is waning and my chicks are back in school, I am beginning to return to my projects. Yesterday, I refinished the wood on two chairs from the yellow house. Next will be the seat weaving. I may do that later. I have 4 more chairs to refinish before the weather turns cold. The chemicals won't work below 50 degrees and besides the fumes are toxic indoors. I better get crackin'.
My SO is picking up some more peaches to freeze today. I have developed a passion for peach smoothies.

Canning tomato sauce

One of my favorite things about vegetable gardening is the food it yields.
Here's what I did today. 10 quarts of tomato sauce. Mmm. . . will be good this winter
