The count down to fall is on.
The days are still filled with warm sunshine.
The nights are crisp and cool.
But I know it wont be long until the weatherman predicts
the first frost.
I am still trying to keep up with all of the veggies
that the garden produces.
Trying out a few new ideas.
Sundried cherry tomatoes seasoned with Italian seasoning smelled
so good drying in the oven.
I have had fun using my new food dehydrator.
How pretty mixed peppers look in a canning jar.
I have been experimenting with green pepper jelly.
I am still trying to find the right flavor by adding jalapenos.
My flowers are really loving the cool nights and warm days.
The celosia are in full bloom.
And the zinnias just keep blooming!
Here is a picture of my prize winning zinnia!
I was so excited!
I love to dry these pretty gomphrena.
They make great dried arrangements for the winter.
I have also been trying out bread recipes that incorporate honey.
This honey oatmeal bread recipe
seems to be the favorite so far.
But it is so much fun taste testing,
I am sure we will have a new favorite soon.
Fall weather also brings my other favorite season,
It sure makes Sunday afternoons canning sessions
a lot more entertaining when there is football
on the tv!
Well except maybe today,
the Packers lost.
Keep on canning!
