Dehydrated Tomates

Love the rich red colour of these tomatoes.

It is all around us right now the ripe fruits and vegetables are an indication of the end of summer season.  Apples, peaches, pears, corn, cabbages and yes tomatoes.

I am luck to have this Holland Marsh  wetland close by well about 20 minutes driving distance from my home.  As per their website “Produce selections range from more traditional crops such as carrots, onions and celery, to more diverse options like Chinese broccoli, Asian radish, and water spinach”.  So a lot of the vegetables I believe are coming from there to our local store that I have right around my home.

I also have a knitting / sewing friend that grows carrots and onions right in Holland Marsh. Luck for me I have been getting a bag here and their from her and her husband. With the onions  I make this amazing yummy onion soup. Carrots are great for carrot cake or soup too.

So since yesterday I have been dehydrating 3 baskets full of tomatoes so my hubby can take them on his up-coming hike to  Munising Falls Michigan (Pictured Rocks) with his hiking friends.

Have a great September to all of you.

I may have to do the same with apples soon

So peaceful this is!img_7723

You should see the rocks and the crevasses, many covered with all kinds of moss.  Just love all the little things I see when taking time to look. Perfect moment.

So friedlich ist das!img_7704

Du solltest die Felsen sehen und die Äste, viele mit allen Arten von Moos bedeckt. Perfect den Foto Aparat  mit zu bringen. All die kleinen Dinge, die ich sehen, mann muss nur die Zeit nehmen zum schauen. Perfekter Moment.

We met so many friendly people . Vendors and Customers…just a good bunch of people.  I truly love being part of this all.

Have a look at our booth “The Yarn Store” http://www.theyarnstore.ca/

2013-09-14 09.11.48It is amazing to see all the booths  going up in many hours of: How should this look, where do we place this skein. Should we put it up in rows of colours or in the same weight?  How  many colours do we have? No here it goes…or Ana I need this for here. Giggles and smiles we had…2013-09-14 09.12.11

Resting at night not sure how the others did but I did not do much of that ….my mind was on the next day’s show….and hoping  all goes just as planned….GREAT!!!

Fun…and then the selling , and talking about  the yarn . “DyeHard” by my college Deb Y , “Yarn Hallow”, “JoJoland”, Noni Purses!..the list goes on…..even posing for pictures …all was so much fun.

2013-09-14 09.12.06Then the taking it all down in what…???only  1/3 of the time it took to put it up….

Truly something to experience from what my Mom (how is visiting from Switzerland2013-09-14 09.12.16) is telling me. She too enjoyed every moment of it …

You should see the Store  today…almost all back to normal…with fantastic yarns to knit up for this fall Cardigan You always wanted to knit or crochet…

See you soon…

Hugs and Smile
