Finished my market bag. Considering adding a small pocket on the inside for change and whatnot.
Overall, I'm pleased. It's sturdy and easy care, made from @knit_picks dishie in jalapeño and honeydew. Best part is there will be no tasty sugar peas escaping out the bottom. Useful for the garden and the farmers market.
Making @foodinjars nearly seedless blackberry sage jam. Over the years (and boy, can you those years on the pages ☺️) I've discovered that I like to simmer the berries first, to break down what can be hard fruit and minimize waste, before straining. I've also swapped out the regular sage for pineapple sage. The herbaceous pineapple flavor and aroma really make this jam special.
A small sample of what I've been doing over the last week. L - R:
honeyed nasturtium jelly
apricot gochujang BBQ sauce
mixed stone fruit jam
balsamic pickled onions
strawberry jalapeño jam
pickled garlic scapes
And a couple of crocheted baskets for gifting.
I was rather busy today. I got almost all of my plants in dirt and the lunchbox peppers are mouse melons are developing nicely. Missa's (@themissacupcake) garden is mostly thriving with cauliflower, squash and ground cherries all coming in quickly. Though the broccoli and cabbage are attracting mites like crazy.
