End of August is always so busy! Aside from sneaking away for 24 hours camping, we’ve been to the air show, visited other friends out camping, worked in the garden, and started to clean house before the end of summer. Mr. Kate is planning a bike trip into the states with some friends in a couple of weeks. But the busiest busy -maker – this is ‘putting up’ time. This week-end it is basil pesto and bean chutney (’cause oh my I have a lot of beans). Last week, thanks to a very generous friend and boss, it was fish we were putting up.
Thank goodness Mr. Kate has some mad knife skills, and Bushboy is becoming proficient at the vacuum sealer. We now have a nice stash of coho fillets, steaks, sides and whole fish in the freezer. Fresh, west coast fish.
Next week (after the bean chutney) will be blackberry time – jamming and freezing. I also just saw in the flyer that BC peaches are on sale by the case right now….
