Saturyay

I’m still fighting a summer cold. My doc says 7-10 days is normal for a virus, so hopefully I’ll be right as rain by tomorrow.

My first canned tomatoes.

The garden is producing tons of tomatoes. No one seems to be eating them, so I started canning. This is my first batch. The pink is German Pink and the other two are Cherokee Purple. I wasn’t sure how the Cherokee Purple would can, but they peeled better than the German Pink, although you can see they are seedy. Will still be good in soups, I bet. I also canned two jars of Bob’s tomatillo salsa.

I finished clue seven of the mystery knit along early in the week. The last clue is out, so I plan to finish this up this weekend, if I can. Lots of beading!

Other than that, not very productive this week. Today I need to start collecting the flax seeds in the garden and will start retting some flax for fiber. It got away from me since I’ve been sick. And I want to sew on my overalls this weekend. Hopefully I’ll have something for a Year of Projects update tomorrow!

  1. Let’s see. Canning tomatoes, knitting a large section of gorgeous lacy shawl, all while being under the weather – I’m impressed! If you are telling yourself you should have done more, you need to cut yourself a little slack!

  2. Everything you are doing looks so wonderful! Wishing you all better soon Alissa. I miss you on The Wool Channel but I’m with the above post, a little rest can go a long way to full recovery.
