I've got about 5 quarts of frozen plum halves, just waiting to be used in smoothies, 2 quarts of dried plums, a dozen plums ready to be eaten fresh ... and about as many as there are in the picture, waiting to be picked up. If you're local and want plums, come visit! But keep reading, too.
The tomatoes in the garden had a lovely time of it last week, what with the warm temps and lots of sunshine. (This week, not so much. Drizzly, temps struggling to get to 60 today.) I picked a nice crop on Monday and turned them into tomato sauce. Fourteen pints canned and ready to go for homemade soup in the winter! My favorites are the Black Krim. They make a nice meal all by themselves, too, or perhaps with an ear of corn on the cob from the stand in town.

Knitting is going knittily, and biking would be going much better today if it were dry outside. Ten degrees more of warmth would be nice, too. I got myself a bike jersey, just in time for the 80s to become 50s! Argh. And once it hits 60, the winds are supposed to be in the 20s. Planning one's ride out of the wind just does NOT happen on rural roads in corn land.
Enough computer for today ... time to head off and look to the house!
