The past five weeks or so, I've been reaping the benefits of John's garden and the fruit (domestic and wild) that grows in this wonderful valley. My days of picking, stemming, boiling and jamming gladden my eyes and heart.

John's no slouch in that department either, because he spent hours this morning canning his heritage tomatoes, with more to come in the coming month. Can you just imagine how these will taste made into a redolent spaghetti sauce?
Oh, and then there are garden peas, beans, zucchini, cucumbers, beets, carrots and blackberries to come, - have I missed any colour in the rainbow?
