I'm waiting for some glassware to air dry - delicate stuff I don't want to break. I have a few hours of research ahead of me and then I can relax for the rest of the day! Yay!! It is too hot to do much - I'll probably read and spend time with Palmer until it cools off enough I can check on the cats and Shaggy. I did not get all of the tomatoes done yesterday. The last batch was still cooling at 1 in the morning. I ran out of garlic, too, so I did not make as much sauce as I wanted. It was still a very long day! Tomorrow is a harvest day if the weather is cooler and dry, otherwise I will wait until Thursday. Friday is supposed to be cool, so I might can some more. I need to buy supplies first. The grapes are slowly turning purple - soon I will have to take care of them. The one apple tree is about ready, too. I plan on making applesauce - very versatile in baking and yummy all by itself. There is a pear tree at the end of the road and nobody has picked any of the fruit, so I might pick a bushel or so. It is a gorgeous tree and I hate to see the fruit rot. If I do pick some, I plan on making chutney and some pear sauce. There has been such a bounty this year - makes me think this winter might be rather miserable.

Off to do my research . . . be MERRY!!!
I love picking all the fruit this time of the year, the apple farm down the road will be opening soon and I want to get there right away before the popular varieties are gone. There is a pear tree out int he country close to here loaded with pears that we are going to pick next weekend.
