Well, we certainly haven't been busy around here lately, but the last couple of weeks have been full to bursting with back to school, video making, house building, and most pressing and most consuming-harvesting, gleaning, and processing fruits and vegetables. Trugs, boxes, baskets and bags of tomatoes, tomatillos, beets, pears, peaches, apples, potatoes, grapes, and basil passed through Katie's kitchen as day after day we chopped, squeezo-ed, cooked down, dried, jarred, processed, and tucked away. Happily, we are on the home stretch, the end is in sight (unless we find a source for sweet corn to freeze!). After we can the grape juice today and process a couple bushels of apples this weekend we are excited to return to our creative work, regular posting and best of all, preparing for Katie's book hitting the shelves!
