If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

Tomatoes Are Coming In!

I must admit, I've been so busy lately, I've pretty well neglected my garden. Luckily, we've had plenty of rain, and plants tend to be pretty self-sufficient really. So my garden didn't really miss me.

In fact, a quick look shows me that there are several small tomatoes starting to grow.

I can also see I need to get out there and weed this garden. (ahem)

Nothing else is in the ground yet. Hopefully, I'm not too late to plant peppers, green beans, and cukes. Or, if I am, hopefully, I can find some half-grown plants to put in the ground. Hey, it's not cheating. It's creative materials sourcing.

My plan was to have a bunch of stuff growing so I could do some canning this year. I remember my mom canned a lot of vegetables. It's fun, practical, and makes me way more valuable in a post-apocalyptic world.

I'm not sure I'll get to do any canning, though. I usually only get time to do some "Sun" Dried Tomatoes in the oven. And this year I am busier than before.

We'll see. I got a couple of salsa recipes I want to try. I think I might be able to get to that.
