Blessings from the Garden

It is like a piece of art to see jars of my garden produce in the pantry. Each year I try to find something or some different way to can from the garden.

This year it is Marinated Roasted Peppers... only got two small jars and I have no idea how they will taste! I planted Cherry Pick sweet peppers. I will plant more next year if they taste as good as they look.

Bells of Ireland

Just had to show a close-up,
 too bad I can't send the fragrance!

Garden Blessings

I have wonderful weather since on vacation.... just doing things around home... It was a Dreamy day.

 I found this tag while cleaning in my pantry..." I wonder how it got in there! I am getting ready to stock the pantry with my canning goodies from this year... The tomatoes I will can today.

 I plan to make my Sloppy Joe condiment sauce and hopefully will have time to make a batch of cooks down to this wonderful deep Ruby color.

On my table my favorite flowers from my garden, Bells of Ireland, they have a spicey fragrance that I just love.  It is hard to believe that my favorite flower is just green!
  Yes , wonderful tomatoes from my garden, a delightful  sunny day, and I do have a grateful heart!

I gave my mother-in-law a gift certificate for an " Afternoon of Art" for her 85th Birthday. Yesterday was a picture perfect September Day in Minnesota. Here is a picture of Beatrice with the Visual Stash Journal she made.
