As always, I spent the weekend going full bore. I roasted tomatoes, shoveled compost, took a fall walk, picked apples, and made jam. Wow, now that I think about it I am quite tired.
I didn't have enough tomatoes to can, so I tried something different. I quartered them, covered them in olive oil, and sprinkled them with basil, oregano, and rosemary. My oven wasn't working, so my brilliant husband grilled them for an hour. Yumm.
I'm a bit concerned about my hummingbird. It is October first and she is still here. I brought in my glass feeders. There is still a plastic one outside. I have never had one stay this long. I'm afraid she will freeze.
This is one of the biggest hornet's nests I've ever seen. Trust me I used the zoom to capture it. We have had a problem with waps swarming in the cabin. We cannot find where they are coming from.
Have you made any jams or jellies this year? Are the leaves changing? Have you had many hornets this year?
