As we enjoy the patio tomatoes that are finally starting to yield, I’m turning again to some wonderful Okanagan tomatoes to fill my pantry. This year, my canning is limited to tomatoes, nectarines and peaches. I seem to get much more easily overwhelmed these days and figure that with a combined 70 pounds of fruit, I am tackling the maximum of what I can rationally handle. The Okanagan peaches are absolutely fantastic this year… and hopefully there will be enough to fill some jars after we finish stuffing our faces.

While Jeff was barbequeing our dinner last night, I looked up with shock to see that the maple tree off our back deck is in the midst of changing colour. It continues to be so hot here (+34 today) that I had forgotten autumn is about to appear.
