Not Anything To Do With Quilting

I have always wanted a vegetable garden. For real. But it just isn't possible. Right now. 

Instead, we joined a CWS farm this summer. Our first delivery is tomorrow. We won't be getting a lot of anything this time, but I am expecting great things later this summer.

I love the idea of eating well. We do our best here but there are days when Subway meets our immediate dietary needs.

With the whole vegetables from the farm, lots of choice at the local Farmer's Market, and the tweets of Mrs McPorkchop (who makes things like blackberry lime freezer jam and vanilla peach butter ),  I have been inspired to try my hand at canning, jam making and the like.

Are you laughing yet?

I mean I have bought books and everything. Books like "Canning for a New Generation".

For sure you are laughing now. My husband is.

I'll let you know how it goes.

PS - that Everyday Food magazine pictured above is amazing. You should pick it up.

Instead of Sewing

I have been

making God's eyes and

making paper butterflies and ...

and weaving with paper and

and making tie dyed shirts.  Among a million other fun summer activities.

So there hasn't been much sewing.  Only 2 Farmer's Wife blocks.  That's it.

But we have had so much fun, that sewing has kinda been the last thing on my list.
