in my kitchen

There is clutter.

And chaos.

But good clutter. And good chaos.

There is heat. Oh, it has been a hot summer!

And learning to can with a fussy baby (let me tell you how much fun that is!).

There is a friend to help (to help a lot! Thank you!)

We found it is so much more pleasant when you're working along with someone.

And at the end of the day -  some lovely salsas, jams and pickles.

After the early summer jams, the more intensive (yet so rewarding!) work of late summer preserving has begun!

Crystal you are an inspiration. I would love to learn how to do what you are doing. Did you grow all of the fruits and veggies yourself.

Sounds like a crazy, busy, relaxing, tiring, wonderful day! Love the glimpse. :)
