Labor of Love!!

Labor day has come, the end of summer, yet somehow the harvests just seems to be rolling in.  Now I have to pick daily instead of weekly and the abundance feels well-earned after a long wait.  I spend Labor Day setting up the outdoor canning station…Canning on the Coleman keeps the heat out of the house and in the yard with the rest of the radiant sunlight.

The tomatoes have finally decided to show their true colors and I just have to keep up!!  The pesto is being processed by the case load in preparation for the Santa Fe Harvest Swap Oct 20th!! (Yes we are doing it again, but have yet to send out the sign up…coming soon of course!!, stay tuned) Summers gifts are carrying us into fall and I am grateful to finally have some food to put by!  Hope your summers have been generous and filled you up to carry us into the new season and may your Labors be those of love.
