Welcome to September 10 on 10…
If you happen to be new here, 10 on 10 is a monthly photo challenge to shoot 10 photos over (roughly) 10 hours, on the 10th of the month – a pattern which I take great liberties with. 😉
This warm September 10 on 10 day is “canning centric”. The garden is in full swing, and all this delicious fare needs to be prepared so it can be enjoyed all winter. This is a huge part of my life. The garden, the food, the farm…these things are part of what makes me, me.
When pears are ready, they’re ready. There is no putting them off, and 50+ pounds were ready this morning!
Some of the pears are being canned.
Some of the pears are being dried, and the pears are so sweet after drying it’s like candy. SO. GOOD.
My peppers are ready…
and so is the second planting of corn…
so it’s time to make some corn relish!
*PSA – if you’re interested in canning, ALWAYS use an approved recipe. In this day of internet everything, there are a LOT of unsafe recipes going around.
A couple of afternoon hours devoted to working on the greenhouse.
A loaded cooler to take corn to some other families.
A simple BLT grilled sandwich, corn, and sliced tomato for dinner, was the perfect end to the day.
That brings to a close this September 10 on 10. 10 on 10 photo project is the most achievable photo challenge I’ve found, so please consider joining me next month.
Until next time,
play hard, and have fun,
