A Bountiful Harvest!

Even though it's been a sometimes too wet, and kind of cool summer, we are getting a bountiful late harvest of vegetables.



I picked a basket full of tomatoes to make a big batch of chilli. It's great to have in the freezer for an easy homemade meal! And the beautiful bell peppers are great for stuffing, to use with stir fry, pepper steak and also freeze well to use over the winter.

I made the fun collage of my vegetables using the new collage feature in Picnik! Picnik is a photo editing software that you use in your online browser. It has lots of fun photo editing features, and fonts shapes and seasonal graphics that are easy to use.

It's always fun and flattering when you find one of your Etsy items listed in a Treaury. Janetexcat listed my Flower Basket Handbag in her current "I would carry these!" Treasury on Etsy.
