And yet another one of the nice things about being in a small town is that when I was walking up to the post office I was called over to the open hole in the middle of the road. I had my camera with me and the guys wanted me to take a picture of the leaking pipe. If I had wanted to, I am sure they would have let me climb down into the hole to take the picture. I know you won’t have that happen in a larger town.Knitting did happen over the weekend but I forgot to take pictures of it. I am working on a second sock for Sockoberfest that I need to finish before I can start a new sock. I dug out all of my on the needle sock projects and am going to try and work my way through them. l really need to reduce the sock UFO pile. I am also going to try and work on the current Clapotis on the needles to try and finish it as well this month. Lolly is even starting off Sockoberfest by finishing a UFO as well.
Even a broken ankle will not stop me from playing in the garden. I had picked quite a few Roma tomatoes last week and spent yesterday making tomato sauce to freeze. Instead of making spaghetti sauce, I decided to just make a base recipe with sauteed onions, fresh garlic, roasted garlic, and plenty of tomatoes. I actually had more tomatoes than I though I did. I ended up starting out in two soup pots. I have reduced the sauce down to fit into the larger of the two soup pots but I will be reducing it again tonight. I will be freezing this in small freezer bags that will serve about 2 people. I am planning on picking more tomatoes here shortly and making more sauce with it. There is a chance of a frost tonight so I need to pick the tomatoes. I was speaking with my SIL and she has the freezer room so I will make up a batch of the sauce for her to freeze. I could can the tomatoes but I don’t feel like dragging out the canner. Plus I would have to remember where all of the jars are. I think they are in the shed. Might not be a bad idea to can some now that I am thinking about it. Need to think on that one.
