I did a (very) small batch of tomato canning. It got even smaller when one of my jars broke in the water bath. This has never happened to me before and while I'm sure it would have been heartbreaking to have it happen pre-baby, it was devastating to have it happen after spending an entire day jumping through hoops to keep the little guy occupied enough so that I could get the job done. Three lonely quarts now sit in my cupboard where before there were none, so that gives me hope.
Saturday was a family day. We've learned that Silas needs at least twenty minutes in a new location for him to warm up and start to get involved. He spent the first half of our time at the park happily watching the other kids play while eating strawberries. Then he was ready to join them.
Outside: mowing/cutting/burning/planting our first ever fall garden. Inside: cooking/blending/baking/zucchini pancakes/zucchini brownies/squash soup/cherry lime spritzers/our first ever batch of homemade granola.
