  Starting to get a few blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries!

Nothing like a little home made blackberry cobbler, wayyyy out of season, to make it seem like spring is just right around the corner...

 Ahhh summer!  Just picked about 2 gallons of home grown, vine ripened, Tennessee tomatoes!

 A home grown vine-ripened Tennessee tomato is one reason I garden.

In Tennessee, one can have fresh fruit grown from their backyard garden (or farm) 5-6 months out of the year.

   Maryann,

       Sorry I am so late with this recipe!  My wife said sh just "Googled, making Elderberry Jam" and got lots of recipes.  I will testify that it was scrumptious!

Comment by Maryann Jordan on June 9, 2013 at 9:36pm

no not yet, but the farmers market I go to has amazing things, so if the recipe isn't a state secret, and you would be willing to share, I would love to try it! :)

    Maryann,  do you grow elderberry or have access to a patch somewhere?

Comment by Maryann Jordan on June 9, 2013 at 9:02am

Elderberry Jam sounds great, I think I would be caught malingering or playing sick.

    This, my friends, is the time to notice elderberries in bloom in Tennessee.  I see them along the road and in my herb garden.  Do you grow them?  My wife makes elderberry jam for a treat and if someone feels a cold or flu coming on.  They are tasty and effective cold and flu fighter.

daphne cneorum

Small evergreen bush, native to temperate and subtropical climates. This is the most fragrant plant of the lot, that I have smelt. I suggest not planting it under a window, its fills the house with a very strong over sweet heady scent. Plant…
