Our first ripe Sungolds! (Dmitri's tomato plants.)
So excited. ("Take a picture, take a picture!") Dmitri planting his tomato plants here.
Lettuce in a pot.
New lettuce in the ground.
This squash plant makes me giggle.

And I've spent the last three days working on these lovelies:
Strawberry jam & Peach Butter
It's the first time I've ever canned on my own, so they did not turn out perfectly. But they are delicious. I found it so fulfilling to pick the berries myself, make jam, can them, and have them sitting on the shelf for when berries aren't readily available. I think I'm going to like this new pursuit, despite the similarities to spending days in a sauna.
For now, we are absolutely gorging ourselves on blueberries, strawberries, and peaches. With yogurt, on biscuits, plain. We are about to go for a picnic with arugula, peach, & balsamic dressing in a wrap for lunch. No complaints here...happy happy deliciously-stocked kitchen. My littles could not be happier.
On the list for this week...homemade peach ice cream. And I still have more peaches to turn into butter.
