What's Been Afoot in August

 Hello from the hazy hills of Tennessee.
 While the butterflies danced on the zinnias..
 Our yellow watermelons ripened, and a few were consumed under the cover of night, lol. We think it was a raccoon.

 I started this crocheted shawl.

 And managed to make a successful batch of sauerkraut. The first try ended in the composter. Sigh. All is not perfect in the foothills y'all.
I finished the shawl just yesterday and blocked it overnight.
Our summer garden is just about finished. These cayenne peppers are just a fraction of what we've gathered and strung up to dry. While some other plants failed, they were abundant. I think that pretty much sums up what our summer has been like - heat in abundance.
Till next time, hope yours is way cooler. ;)
