Pardon the Fluff

I’m sure you’ve noticed there’s not a whole lot of crafting going on ’round this here blog. Mainly that is because I am up to my elbows in brine, sauce, berries and good ol’ Lancaster County dirt. Growing, harvesting and “putting up” your own food flutters on the edge of being a full time job. Then toss in a 9-5, house & yard chores along with working Saturday mornings’ Farmer’s Market and frankly, I’m surprised I’ve posted anything over the past few months!

I have done some crafting, modest as it may be. In July I made a skirt for my cousin’s daughter in trade for gettin’ my hairs cut. Please ignore the model’s nakedness, I keep forgetting to pick up some toddler tops to cover the creepy plastic dress form! I don’t make children’s clothing enough to keep it in the forefront of my mind…until picture time that is!

I’m still spending a good amount of time behind my camera. My 365 challenge will come to a close the beginning of October. Honestly, I can’t wait! It’s been fun for the most part, but I’m so over that project now.

Below are a few pictures I pulled from my One Green Tomato and Literal Light blogs to show you what I’ve been up to. Cause I know you think I’m really just kickin’ back, eatin’ bon-bons and being fanned by gorgeous Greek gods and all.

My sunflowers have reached an astonishing height of 14 feet this year! Told ya I got good dirt!
My beans have started coming in; the constant canning has begun!
Plum Pickin’ = Plum Jam, Plum Chutney, Plum Conserves
I grow corn, it is red.
I chase butterflies, constantly!
Radishes
Saturday Morning Market
Curing Onions
Broccoli

If you are interested in keeping up with my photography, gardening and kitchen adventures then may I suggest you head on over to One Green Tomato and Literal Light and sign up to follow me…because followers rock and then I’m not just rambling on about nothing to myself! 😉
