Summer Days

The days of summer are quickly coming to an end.  I don’t feel like I’ve had much of a summer this year with all the craziness, but we have nonetheless managed to enjoy some fresh produce from the garden along the way.  Our usual efforts at preserving some of our summer bounty to enjoy during the winter have however, been seriously lacking this year.  In total, we have managed to preserve about 10 half pints of raspberry jam and a few bags of frozen raspberries.

It is not too late though!  We do have big plans to actually can some salsa and make some applesauce in the next few days.  We’ll see how that goes for us.  🙂

In the meantime, here is a photo I took as I was wandering around my garden one morning in late June.

Lens: Nikkor 70-300 mm f/4.5-5

          • Lens: Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5 – 5.6
          • Focal Length:  240 mm
          • Aperture: f/5.6
          • Shutter Speed: 1/500
I hope everyone is having a productive summer in the gardens!
