Time flies

Not only is summer short, in the Adirondacks, it’s the busiest time of year. Seasonal residents are here and events abound. The Essex County Fair took place last week, and to my amazement, the car rollover contest was still on the program.

Yup.

We finally had some rain and tomatoes are plump and ripe. I picked up extra from the CSA to preserve. You would think I don’t have refrigeration. So far I put up dill pickles, watermelon rind pickles, tomato marmalade, tomato sauce, pickled beets, strawberry jam and India relish.

My sewing machine has been languishing because I have been making friends with my loom.

I’m not the only busy one this summer.
