A batch of yogurt was made. On Saturday morning, while J was working on our orders, I canned tomatoes and shelled beans. When he was done with his part, I cleaned and painted them. During a lull, I fertilized several things with fish emulsion, including all the house plants. Holes were drilled in the canister lid, to turn it into a compost crock. After some research, I was able to figure out how to watch This Is Us on our TV. The sad part is NBC only gives you 3 show credits, and I used one to find out I had already seen that episode. It's been 6 months or so, and I couldn't remember exactly where I was at. Oh well. I suppose after the credits are used up, they'll want payment. Hopefully, I can find another way to view them. I tried a new recipe, with tromboncino squash and orzo. It was pretty good, though a little bland for our tastes.
Our orders were packed up on Sunday. After friends visited, and pawpaws were shared, we headed to town to ship the orders and run a few errands. When we picked up items to do an oil change on my car, we got a deal that gave us a free oil filter. When we got back, I prepped 4 1/2 qts. of pear preserves, which will be canned on Monday. I packed up an ebay sale. In the garden last week, I harvested tromboncino squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, a pepper, the last of the hazelnuts, pawpaws, a few leaves of lettuce, a butternut squash, basil, oregano and thyme. I was happy to find two monarch caterpillars on the milkweed. I'm enjoying these late summer days, and wish you a lovely week ahead.
