A little bounty from today.


Here's hoping that you're all eating a little fresh food with lots of trace minerals still in it!!

Those piccies make me want to step away from the pizza.

edit; patiently waiting for the mountain blueberries around here that have an amazing ability to grow on both North and South flanks of our beloved tree swathed hills.

Small and sweet, you can't believe what passes for blubes from the flats. A hiking mentality and happy bucket is all that's required.

When bushwhacking means BLUEBERRY bushes, you're in the right place ! As for Blackberries, there is a BB bush at the end of every lane and uncivilized patch in the urban region.

Wow eKat, we have to start calling you Tomato Woman, your Indian name.

Not Blackberries, but really good Mulberries!

Will post up more bounty as the season goes!


Steve and Tinker, My sisters and other relatives have been complaining about the rain up in the Northwest for weeks.

NM is good for a few things, heh heh......

I like to combine wild blueberries (flavourful) with store-bought ones (sweet). A good mix. But then, I eat a lot of fruit.

A mixed year.

The cool wet start did in my tomatoes with fungal diseases and I had to tear them out and start over. The corn took of really slow also.

Damn global warming!

Good for the berries though. I've got 10 gallons of Boisen berries and a gallon of raspberries in the freezer so far.

YEAH. . . now we're talkin'!

Look at FarmerBruce's FRIKKEN FARM!

Man.

It's just barely not winter here. . . I can't believe you're so far along!

The wildflowers, high atop the drumlin in the deep northwoods, are goin' off, though. (so are the weeds)

:-)

Here's to BUMPER CROPS!

Yeah girl, and we have already ripped out a couple rows to start the next crop as you can see!

You can also see why I needed that big ladder eh?? Those Apricot trees are 30-40 ft tall!

I could grow some serious medical herb scrips here!!!

EKAT: Sounds like it is morel-hunting time for you!

For the non-initiated: morel = super-yummy mushroom. They are difficult (but not impossible) to mistake for poisonous mushrooms. Morels like pine-forest areas with disturbed, from logging or fires, soils.

Hey there, here at 49N we are not yet in raspberries but the main crop strawberries are now IN from the Fraser Valley.

A litre ( about a quart ) is going for 8$. That's up from last summer.

We've had a wet, cold spring and stuff is about a week behind. Tonight's t-storm was prolly not a good thing for the strawberry pickers tomorrow.

Our home plots are spanky but the lemonbalm and sweet cicely are blasting away harder then our peas & lettuce.

Our roses are on their first bloom and their fragrance enlivens the neighbourhood at dusk.

This is my fave time of the year - just around the summer solstice.

i'm in the north east, not the west. it is supposed to be 80 tomorrow though, and not raining. hopefully that will help the rasberries and blueberries, and everything else in the garden...

hey there survival and all... oh my, in my dreams, only... :(

but i am patient... perhaps years from now, i will once again get my wonderful turn...

i actually DID get to get a small pot of tomatoes last year, with a donated plant... AND some donated brocolli from a gal across the street, so i had a fun time with that...

what i DO HAVE however, i will soon post:

i haveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee taaadaaaa... :)
the ever wonderful milkweed plant!!!

well---if you don't eat too much of it, you actually CAN make soup from the pods, which i did once, from an old aneeshnaabee lady's "kind of" recipe...

but---- what i mean to be so very happy about is this:
the flowers of the milkweed smell so very sweet and lovely... especailly come near evening... the are a fist sized ball, of many spiked buds...

can you IMAGINE the wonderful joy the deer must have this time of year, romping the fields and smelling this over the pine trees...
heavenly.... (i used to SEE where they bedded down, under these milkweed areas, when i used to live across town, near to the woods... )...

well, i have this, around my pond, as i transplanted them, but--all around here, the natural land, eases in, anyways... but i miss the other side of town, however...

well, i will post some pics of my pond area, a little tiny tub sized patch of dirt... if i get a job by next year, i could plant veggies, but there really is not much sun at all.. would have to have moveable push carts, etc....

but i will try to go gather black and blue berries, soon...
*this was my punch line, you all... ;)





well, i will be back later, tonight or morning, with the neat pics...

wow, have fun cooking and eating all this stuff...




oh, say, tinker b... i DO have mint (love mint) :)... but these last two years, it keeps turning DARK spotted on the ends... :( do you know why???


well, all for now... :)
