Stocked and Ready to Jam!

  Stocked and ready to jam!  Raspberry season is here.  Jars, apples (natural source of pectin since raspberries don’t have much) and lemons (for pH) are ready to go.  Now it’s time to get pickin’!  Also, loving those flowers in the background this week – sunflowers and snapsragons are locally grown and from the Collinsville Farmers Market, then I added garlic scapes from my garden for height (see below).  Have a great weekend.



June Garden Update

Spring flowers are winding down, summer flowers are officially in bloom and tomatoes and peppers are blossoming!! 

Loving this rudbeckia that started blooming last week:

Had to take the bird feeder down for the summer so as not to attract the neighborhood bear, yikes!  Made this succulent hanging basket out of old jello molds from GW.  Probably could use a few more to fill in some of the gaps, but it’ll get there.

Have a Happy 4th of July and holiday weekend!
