Relish making, watering, summer produce

The relish I started last night turned into a lovely product.   I made a double batch and canned 11 cups of relish.  DH can’t have sugar, but can have honey.   So I substituted 1 cup honey for the cup and a half of sugar.  Next time, I may go down to 3/4 cup of honey.  It does have salt, but I’m hoping that if he eats a little once in awhile and we aren’t using salt other places, he can get by with it.   If he gets swelling in the legs again, I’ll be sharing it with the children instead.  If you are interested in the recipe, let me know and I will share.    Thank you so much Dar for sharing with me.

Harvest today, included more blueberries, tomatoes, onions, zucchini, basil, and potatoes.   The summer produces so much bounty that it keeps me  busy.   That’s why you see very little creative work then.  In the winter, we live off the summer’s bounty and I have more time for the fiber arts.   Maybe some of you can send me some photos of your work and I can help you enjoy your creative arts.

Even so I need to use fiber just to stay sane.   I thought the month was nearly over, but I just looked at the calendar and I still have most of a week.   Maybe I can sneak in another finish this month.
