I’m all scratched up and nowhere to go!


It’s that time of year! I went raspberry picking this morning and made jam this afternoon! You?

    Our raspberries are just starting to come on…then it will be time for chokecherries. The best jam I have made in years was a couple of weeks ago using a flat of “Black Velvet” Apricots! Guess they are somewhat new on the market, but they make the most delicious, dark, piquant, floral, full-bodied jam I have known. Got them from our local Costco.

    Wish we had wild black raspberries here. I take it they are wild?

    I lived up in Oregon about 60 miles SW of Portland, It was on 216 acres back in the 50`s. I picked a lot of wild blackberries, made jam, pies & such, such nice memories you are reminding me of. I love to garden but I’m in a wheel chair now, & I live near Phoenix, Az. & its too hot anyway, oh well such is life. Enjoy every minute of your fantastic lifestyle, it all goes by sooo fast. :wave:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
