|Blossoms on the apricot tree next door|
I have it growing out in the shoulder of the road at the end of the front pasture. I spend my drive home from work taking the back roads with one eye in the side mirror making sure someone isn't going to ass end me when I hit the brakes because I saw green shoots on the side of the road. We eat so much of this stuff this time of year. I pickle and can it too, but I have to hide it in the back of a cabinet or everyone in the house will devour it before it get's to being summertime. This year I'm thinking of dehydrating a bunch to use in the fall for cream of asparagus soup.
A friend of Scott's from work was getting ready to rip out a bunch of blackberries and wanted to know if we wanted the canes. Of course. Last year I spent lots of time out exploring and finding old blackberry brambles and making blackberry jam.
I gave some to my sister next door to plant. A few to friend down the street, and a few to one of the girls at work. I am so looking forwards to picking our own berries.
I planted them along the berm on the side of the garden.
They're already starting to grow little leafies which will be this years new canes.
And since I haven't put up a pic of Tansy in a while, gratuitous Cane Corso shots...
