You say tomato, I say tah-mah-toe!I'm sitting here listening to lids pop on canning jars full of tomato juice. I'm hoping for 14 pops.
If we do well with them, then we'll move on to something else...perhaps green peppers....or onions...or kohlrabi (kidding!) We used to have a huge back yard FULL of veggies, herbs and flowers and it got to be too much work. This was when we had a double lot in town. Now, we have tomatoes...
Did you know that you can just clean them, quarter them, and freeze them? No blanching required. You can use them in soups, stews, and sauces this way.
So last weekend we had this batch of tomatoes
And I went back to the cabin three days this week, for three to four hours each day, and wove (is it a word? weaved?) three or four bags. I lost track. But I'm enjoying it. Of course, they will need sewn and lined. We are using up the end of the warp on all three looms. I think we are almost finished.
Here is a picture (above) of the material and (below) what it looks like after it's been woven.
The best part of this afghan is that I went through my stash of cascade 220 and pulled out colors to match these covered chair cushions that I made.
My exciting week....
