making lemonade

I've had a few bouts of insomnia lately. In the city the best I can do is creep out of bed and around the corner to work at the desk in the hall, hoping I won't wake Michael, since there's no door to close. (I shouldn't worry, Michael could sleep through subway construction.) In PA my late evenings are considerably more productive:

Bread & Butter pickles soaking at 1 am.

Tiny little hard peaches from a terrace on CPW made delicious jelly.

Roasted vegetables come out of the oven at 3...soon to be salsa.

Apricots almost dry by 4.

Sky's lightening up by the time I go back to bed. And I'm hungry.

Wow! I am surprised your husband doesn't wake up from all the yummy smells of your kitchen. You are so productive in the middle of the night!! I just made pickles also. Love canning! http://nycgardening.blogspot.com/2010/09/perfecting-my-newest-obsession.html

I roasted and canned tomatoes at 2 a.m. this past week. Can totally relate.

You and Beence are insomniacs together at the moment. Poor you...

I was hoping for some lemonade :-)

I love this! I'll wonder what you're making when I wake up in the wee hours to lie there listening to the wind :)
