What I've Been Doing...

I know. I haven't been on my blog nearly as much as I'd like to be.  But I haven't been sitting on my couch eating chocolate.  Well, that's only half true -- I rarely sit down and rest but I still eat plenty of chocolate whenever I get a chance.  Here is what I've been up to:
It's harvest time!  Our garden has produced well for it's first year.  I've canned nearly 50 jars each of tomatoes and peaches.  I did some Mandarin Sauce and some jam too.  This weekend I will be doing applesauce and pumpkin puree.  It's so rewarding to see it all done and stored nicely for us to enjoy later.
I've also been working on some Halloween sewing.  --More on that later.--
Speaking of sewing, there is a great give-away going on at one of my favorite blogs, Spun Sugar Quilts.  Go see.
Have a happy fall day.  (I love the Fall!!)

Were the peach trees already there? How did you get peaches on year 1? (We planted boysenberry starts. We're hopeful to get a crop in 2012.)

No. We don't have peach trees. I got them from my Mom's orchard.
