Right now I’m loving tomato and peach season. tomatoes, tomato-peach season

I love making salsa, more salsa, bbq sauce, jam.

I love the ping of a canning jar sealing and standing and stirring in the steamy kitchen.

I love the golden color of peaches cooking down and the tumble of red-yellow-green of tomato-peach-peppers in the salsa pot.

I love eating ice cream (or chips and salsa) at the end of the day and picturing hot toast slathered with golden jam on a cold morning.

And I love looking at all the jars—adding these orange-reds and yellow- golds to the greens and berry reds and purple-blues—filling my shelves, proof that I have done something with all these summer hours.
