Summer

It's hard to believe that it's summer already. Our granddaughter is here on her annual visit - to me, that means summer is truly here!

And now...

The peaches are ripe and must be dealt with. There are only two dozen left, but I don't want them to go to waste. I was careful to plant freestone peaches, so they won't be too hard to deal with.


The plums are very ripe and must be dealt with right away. That is today's project. Granddaughter and I picked them, peeled them, and are stewing them to be used in our favorite sweet and sour plum sauce. I've never used yellow plums before, but the different color should be a nice change of pace.


[This bucketful is less than half of the plums. As soon as I set the bucket down to take a photo, the indoor cats went nuts over the leaves still attached to the plums. Hmmm.]


The blackberries need to be checked. If they are ripe, they must be picked and dealt with.


The quilt needs to be finished.


I think I'm busy!
