Just the Monday morning I needed/wanted

After a rather harried morning, I returned home to my quiet house and set out on a mission to can all the carrots, garlic scapes and plums in my fridge. I made great progress, and it was such fun. My thoughts were never deeper than a lengthy musing on Pinterest-  I really don't get it. Lots of people pin many pretty, interesting, engaging things, but I found it to be cumbersome, the process a real drag. I'm not sure I can or want to get over the hurdle, so for you dear ones who've already started following me, prepare to be underwhelmed. Check out the incredible color of these garlic scapes, pre-brine. And look at this hardworking bee- love him! Lastly, the final product (well, a few are from Friday and Saturday) of my morning.
