    Your long weekending looks amazing and calming. I still try to preserve something too. So many plans and so little time, I think that I have to change priorities;)

    Sound like a wonderful weekend! Those tomatoes looks so good!

    All the fresh produce looks lovely. How wonderful to have a friend help with the canning, it does make it the work more fun and canning salsa [and tasting] is the best! Have you started school yet? We are starting tomorrow. I would love to keep the vacation going, but I guess it’s time for us to get back at it! Enjoy this beautiful day! xx

    Sounds like a lovely weekend!

    I am jealous of your home-canned tomato sauce. We put four Roma tomato plants in containers out back this spring—since we are renting (and our landlord was trying to sell the house until about a month ago!) I didn’t want to plant right in the yard—but the rabbit that lives back there ate almost all of them… If we are still here next year I may have to put up a very temporary chicken-wire fence to keep the little guy out… xo

    We have not had as many tomatoes as I thought from our garden. Maybe next year will be more productive. I love the sunflower photo 🙂 Your weekend looks so relaxing and I bet you are in a new routine with your little family addition!

    Looks like quite a list! Wondering if I’ll get half as much done so soon after our new baby arrives….:) (Perfect ladybug picture, by the way!)
