The last weekend of summer.
Rather than dwell on what has been, I prefer to look ahead.
We had three days to kick off harvest season and we started by making some old fashioned ketchup. It was a success....not just taste wise but also, after three lacklustre years, we finally have a great tomato harvest from our own garden. No blight, no severe drought conditions, no muskrat invasion. So good in fact, that all we have to be careful of is beating a posse of gangly, rambunctious roosters to the promised fruit. Luckily, they prefer beefsteak over roma. Still...garden security will have to be rethought over the coming winter.
Here's to the days of work ahead, and gratitude for the season past.
And here's hoping your weekend, whether it was short or long in your part of the world, was just as lovely.
~Be well friends!
