canning for winter

:: i left a few jars out in the kitchen the other day. upon my return, my little one had been canning some vegetables for winter. celebrating the seasons and incorporating seasonal activities has become an important part of our lives. with each passing year, we discover more experiences that facilitate our sense of wonder and bring us closer into nature. while i have never canned, i know my little one and my family is in need of building these stronger connections. knowing this, we are on our journey towards a slower pace, simplifying our lives and live our lives with more meaning, more intention.

:: aside from a few mouthwatering 'Sungold' cherry tomatoes, this is our first tomato of the season. A 'Orange Strawberry Oxheart'. Not really knowing the faith of our tomato plants this year, we savored every bite.

:: found on one of our recent nature walks.

:: dried mud from the other day.

:: wishbone plant to attract hummingbirds.
