Canning Peaches

“Canning Peaches” oil on panel, 2014

 

Harvest season means canning, canning, freezing, drying and more canning.  Winter is coming quickly–the pumpkin spice lattes and Jubel Ales are out in full force already! Autumn brings the bittersweetness of the memory of peaches and the last big push of the tomato plants before the rains are here to stay. Pulling out the spent bean vines and squashes that have completely succumbed to powdery mildew is like cleaning up the empty beer bottles and sticky plates after a really great party.  Time to tidy up, relish the memory of fun times, and hibernate for a few months.
