Fruits of My Labor

Yesterday I canned peaches. They will help get us get through the winter that is looming not far in the horizon.

Today the high is expected to be 62 degrees. The high on Monday in suppose to be in the mid 50’s.

It’s time to kick off Fall. I’m making a pot of lentil barley soup and stuffed green peppers. Fall comfort food.

Save some peaches for winter to have with ice cream (and invite me). They look really good.

You have lentil barley soup and suffed peppers, I've not had that. I go for my Jim made chili in the winter time.

Thanks for looking at my weed. I've been told it is a Texas weed, it is so large.

It is 12:25 AM, eastern time, and the temperature is still 72 degrees. We need rain badly.
Those peaches certainly do look yummy.

The peaches look yummy. Did they take long to can? Did you make many cans?

Mmmm! Home canned peaches and buttery toast for breakfast. What a lovely thought for a cold winter day. Your peaches look like they'd take a blue ribbon at the fair.
I used to can all sorts of fruit when my children were still at home. My sons could gobble up a quart at a time.
We used to drive over the mountains to Eastern Washington to buy our fruit at the orchards. It was much cheaper and a nice day trip too.
I've been canning applesauce and apple butter for winter. Well, actually the apple butter isn't making it till winter. LOL I plan to make a lot more.

Were you having some "adult beverage" when you made the comment on my blog? I asked if it was grass or turf on the golf course and you assured me that golf courses do have trees!!! LOL

Thanks for making me laugh again Ralph!!!

When the chilly winds blow this winter, those peaches will taste good with 12" of snow. Eh Ralph. Scoop a little. Eat a few peaches.

You'll enjoy those peaches for sure!
They look great!!
I'm ready for fall weather. Today, it is perfect here. We've had rain off and on for the past four days, and now it's sunny, low humidity, and nearly fifteen degrees cooler than it's been. Ahhhh, what a joy!
