Tonight I’m tying up loose ends. Since I’ve been canning the kitchen is starting to look like a war zone so I’ve got to get things back in order. Salt shakers need filled, the pepper mill needs peppercorns and the pans in the cabinet . . . oh my gosh, I’ve just shoved them in there and shut the doors. Happens about this time every year, but it’s got to be put back in order tonight because I just can’t stand it anymore!! I’ve got a couple heads of cabbage that need cut up, blanched and frozen along with 2 dozen ears of corn and a few more eggplant, but that's all the veggies. I’ve dedicated tonight to all the stuff that doesn’t matter - - but if it’s not done drives one crazy!!!
I stopped by our favorite farm market tonight and picked up some corn. You all quit snickering . . . or I might cry. Who would have thought with the most beautiful corn we’ve ever had in our garden, that I would be buying the stuff!! Aghh!!!
Tomorrow I’m going to take another stab at getting back into my herb garden and working on drying and preserving my herbs. Every time I start out there something else requires my attention, so let’s just keep this between you and me. Perhaps if I’m real quiet and just sort of stroll that direction I will at last be where I really want to be - doing what I really want to do.
