The written tale on the reverse of this postcard had visual qualities nearly as good as this beautiful painting of peach jam by Desiree Habicht.
So here it is....
Dear KatherineI most certainly did Desiree - I am salivating at all those wonderful products of your labour - and that amount of work most definitely counts as sketchercise!
With our fruit trees in full production and everything ripening at the same time I am forced to deal with bushels of fruit. I do love to can and put up things I grow. The weather has been so nice and I have an outdoor kitchen where I sterilize jars and process jams. It helps keep the house cooler but requires a lot more running for me. After two solid days of picking, cleaning, processing and sealing I feel it qualifies as Sketchercise!
This year I made peach jam, peach-japaleno jelly, peach bellini jam, peach salsa, peach-cantaloupe preserves and corn relish. Yummy - 45 jars of goodies!
