If a picture paints a thousand words

This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.

Fruits (or Vegetables) of my labors - Day 220

I started buying bountiful baskets.  If you are lucky enough to live near a place that allows you to buy them, they are amazing and I am totally in love with the co-op concept.  Every two weeks, I buy two baskets.  Whatever I can't use (or don't get around to) I bottle.  This is just a few of the recent jars of joy!
I have done several bottles of sweet potatoes, a stew mixture, and green beans.  I can't wait until my garden gives me some more goodies to can.  There is just something so fulfilling about making a difference.  

Don't waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours and ages that will follow it.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
