Putting Away

The past few days have been BUSYand tiring as I've been canning the first batch of the tomatoes and pears from the garden.  And it's been hot.  Very, very hot.  The pears decided to suddenly ripen (they're tricky like that) and I needed to get some put away before this batch was lost.  And I had a bunch of tomatoes that were threatening the same thing if I didn't do something with them.  It's a lot of work but it will have big payoffs this winter!  And I found a recipe for pear pie that I made this morning and we'll be sharing at my mom's later today so we'll enjoy some of the bounty right away!  There will be more canning of pears tomorrow while Brian works on painting the front porch.  The side porch is done - hooray!  But for today, I rest.
