9.1.14 Labor Day

9.1.14 Labor Day

The summer’s been full of unexpected changes, with the garden remaining the one constant, providing comfort and moments of joy. Thank-you to all who’ve asked about our absence — as we sort things out, we’ll be posting when we are able. Though we cannot foretell the future, the long week-end spent canning and stocking the pantry became an act of faith in whatever may come. “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” ― Alan Wilson Watts

Harvesting: Fun jen, kale, chard, summer squash, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, radishes, favas, filet beans, shishito peppers, fairy tale eggplant, salad greens, arugula.

Preserving: Canning tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, dilly beans, dill pickles; freezing roasted cherry tomatoes.
