Come with me to my backyard,
we'll have ourselves a feast...
here is our sour cherry tree...so burgeoning with fruit a branch broke off...
these are tangy and tart but make great pie!
mulberries from our weeping mulberry tree...birds love them as do my kids
raspberries....smaller patch now, makes them more special
These apples need a few more weeks, then they will become applesauce. Great with grill cheese by the way!
and the dreaded job of these two; currant picking. My youngest said with a sheepish grin today, " I think ONLY the people who actually like currants should have to pick them."
Oh little girl I once was you...how I understand your point of view.
Oh dear mother, now I know...what those patient years have scattered and sown...
juice or jam- which will it be? maybe both....
thank-you for strolling with me in my back yard,
please come inside for a glass of ice tea.
I wish you all manner of prosperity,
with a little more taste.
