|Arliss takes a whack|
The wild raspberry vines that my mother-in-law and I found have produced over 2 quart bags of the beautiful goodness. We have found a number of mulberry trees and nut trees as well. I have learned so many identifications for plants by reading books and listening to my mother-in-law. My mother-in-law has taken a hunter's survival course and can tell which plants are safe to eat and which ones can be used for medicinal purposes.
We have found horehound, stinging nettles (the hard way), and nightshade. Now the nightshade is not a safe plant, but it is important to recognize it so we don't ingest it in any way.
|my first potato!!|
My cucumbers are blooming, as are my zucchini, and other squashes. My corn has a couple of ears and my pumpkin vine has taken over the garden wherever there is an open area (think the 1950's movie The Blob).
I really thought the heat would have prevented any of my plants from doing much more than shriveling up. Hooray for tenacity!!
|A beautiful end to a summer day|
Take care and stay out of the heat.
Sipping an ice cold sun tea in your honor,
with love from the farm.
