Beautiful Blessing!!

Thank You for it!!

I forged for blackberries
and made a freezer jam. It
is so hot I didn't want to
warm up the place to make a
blackberry cobbler like I
would of like to.

I didn't take my camera on
my trek to the pond, but I
did see some new ducklings.

I was reading a Dandelion
book I like. Sometime I'll
make a blog entry about it.
It has a lot of recipes in

I also picked some chickory
seeds and took them to another
area in hopes they will grow
there next year.

Also did the same thing with some Mallow plants. I have tasted the little peas from that plant and really like them.

God Bless You and Yours!!!

I did some guerrilla gardening
with sunflowers but they haven't
come up.

Have a Blessed Week!!

Hi JoAnn ~ Thanks for the Blessing!

Hi Flassie ~ You could have froze the berries whole and made cobbler later on when it's cool. I wash mine , lay them out on a towel to dry , after they're dry , put them on a baking sheet and freeze them. When they're froze , you pack them into a container and put them back in the freezer. The berries don't stick together this way and you'll be able to use what you need. You can blanch them , but I never have.
I bet the ducklings were cute , don't think we're going to have any babies around the farmette this year. I haven't had a hen go broody and the guinea haven't been successful in hatching their eggs.

The dandelion book sounds interesting , look forward to your post. I've never used chickory or mallow since we don't have it growing on our land. I have seen chickory growing along the side of the roads here , may have to snatch some seed and try your idea of getting it grow in the yard here , so I don't have to worry about chemicals on it.

A bird , squirrel or some other critter may have eat your seed , or maybe they're weren't good.

~ Be Blessed ~

It is out of print so that is
probably why the high price.
Thats a lot of money.

She has other books and DVD's.

I hope it is at your library
or they can get it through
interlibrary loan.

I've gotten some books from
out of state through inter-
library loan.

Oh, Thanks for the idea
JoyceAnn!! I"ll try that
on the next batch of
blakberries I pick.

Most Chickory seems to grow
alongside the road. I wonder
why. That is why I moved the
seeds of both plants to another

I hope the sunflower seeds I
gave my nephews wife are good.
They were both bought for this

Thanks for stopping by!!

God Bless You and Yours!!!
