Squirrel Behavior

Perusing the fruits of my summer labor...

We should be set with green beans, tomato juice, salsa, grape juice, pickles, grape jelly, tomato chutney...

...also applesauce and a couple of loaves of zucchini bread. Those foil packages at the bottom are coffee beans from Michael's annual trips to the Dominican Republic.

And here are the meals I've made in advance, ready to pull out on busy days of teaching piano lessons. The freezer boxes have shredded zucchini in them so that I can make fresh loaves of zucchini bread, which is a favorite quick breakfast.

This is wealth.


  1. Oh, you must feel so PROUD. And it's all so tidy too :)
    What is the set of books with your canning jars?

  2. Ha. The books are a very old set of encyclopedias that somehow came with the house and which I just find pretty.

  3. I think they've never budged from that spot.

  4. Wow! That's beautiful and almost makes me want to take up canning. But then again . . . maybe another time. Congrats on the success of all your hard work!

  5. Thanks Jana. You could do it! Maybe you have room to garden at the new place.


I write my posts imagining that I am already in the middle of a conversation with you. I hope you will comment and be a part of the conversation.
