Tomatoes are almost a given this time of year.  Some years it is true have been lean, but not this year!
Here are some Yukon Gold new potatoes.  These are a thin skinned potato, just right for digging all thru the summer.  The Russetts we will let go til the fall, for storage.
This is my second batch of Blackberry Jam/Preserves, this time I used Maggies recipe, which uses no pectin.  I was a little nervous because I did not have a candy thermometer to keep track of the the temp.  I had bought one yesterday and left it at Wally World, when I went to go get it today, they didn't have any more.  So I followed the old sheeting method you find in books like "Stocking Up ".  To say I was a little nervous about it is an understatement.  I had a little left over so I put it in a little glass bowl on the counter to cool.

Well what do you know, it worked! Yumm!

Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
