This is the time for small.

Not vast.


Like three or four pints of apricot jam, not twenty.

Like a garden of one zucchini plant, one row of green beans, three plants of parsley

and two hollyhocks standing sentry.

Small is the size of my energy.

Small is good.

And this morning I made four pints of apricot jam from David L's recipe.

The house smelled wonderful! It was incredible to just make four pints, where I would have certainly have made at least 12, and started other jams too, since I had the canner out. That was other years. This is now.
