Been here done this! Sure feels good doesn't it? We are about to

Hi Carol , Wow ~ Your harvest is early. My Dad always said that no matter how early he planted tomatoes here , they wouldn't ripen til around the 4th of July. I'm so looking forward to a fresh vine ripen tomato. Although I don't think we'll be getting the larger tomatoes for awhile , we planted late this year.

Yummy! Already your blackberries are starting to ripe! I'll have to check out the blackberries around here. I found some in walking distance.

Found four cherry trees in the park and one across the street
on City property. There is a walnut tree in the park too.

I think there must of been a home where the park is now.

Down the street is a old home with a barn and orchard. Lots of newer homes around it like there is by this park with the cherry trees.

I like the quote!

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Hi Flassie ~ I picked about a pint of blackberries this morning , thinking about making a blackberry cobbler. I need to learn how to use my stevia herb , trying to get away from sugar.

Will you be able to harvest from the cherry trees ? That will be great if you can.

The cobbler sounds good.

That stevia is sweeter
than sugar I think.

I hope to get some cherries,
b/4 the birds or caterpillers
do. I can not climb the tree
but hope to get what is close
within reach.

I do not think they spray because
there is so much weeds growing
around there that it isn't funny.

I hope to try out the
snow replacement for the
egg in a cake if it snows
next year. I forgot to try
it last winter.

God Bless You and Yours!!!
