Yesterday Erin over at Garden Now - Think Later did a post on some of the canning she's been doing of her garden produce. She commented that we all show pictures of the colorful jars of salsa or pickles or jams lined up but seldom do we take pictures to show the mess that we've made while creating these gems in jars that so attractively line our pantry shelves.
Erin wrote, "Post what's not in the photo! Yep, I want to see your garbage bowls, arms covered in pulp, goggles and gloves when peeling those hot peppers, juice spattered on the dog, walls, sink full of unwashed dishes, you know the drill!"
Well, since my efforts are currently being centered on our house finishing and remodeling this summer and the veggie gardens are being given a long overdue rest, I have nothing to show you of my canning or preserving messes.
But . . . I can show you what our to-be living room looks like right now in all of its (un)elegant glory.
So, Erin, how's that for qualifying as a mess worthy of not posting??
