A farmgirl believes in the strong arms of friendship, community, and the just plain fun of being together.
Right now I’m off to serve lunch to my husband, go check on the progress of the garden, check and admire the biddies, gather eggs, do a little ironing, and then start supper…See y’all later!

Another hen is gone…We found the feathers yesterday. We now have only two. I also woke up not feeling very well this morning, and have been out of sorts. Meaning, weak, not up to doing any housework or outside chores. I think I may have overdone it yesterday! Please say a prayer for me!
A friend and I were just talking today about the Mayhaw. It is becoming harder and harder for us to find in the wild, although from my research I found out it is being revived in orchards, and is available in nurseries now. I’m not sure if it is/was actually on the verge of being extinct, but according to this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayhaw – the long-living tradition of going out and picking them in the spring, of which I have been familiar with all of my life, is becoming a thing of the past for several reasons – one being the destruction of the mayhaw’s native habitat. It’s about that time of the year again to go out and forage for these berries for making scrumptious Mayhaw jelly. I wonder if we will find them! They are very similar to a crabapple I’d say – the closest description I can come up with for anyone unfamiliar with these… Also a pic is found here: http://www.southeasternoutdoors.com/flora/trees/articles/mayhaws-fruit-landscaping-wildlife.html
I don’t know why I keep dreaming up new things, because everything I already have and do keeps me busier than bees in the springtime! But you know me!!

LOCALLY, we have our first “meeting” planned for June 3…We will be making dewberry, and blackberry jam and jelly! Maybe more types, depending on what we have available between the four of us.
Our next tentative meeting, (no date set yet) for the next meeting, we will be picking tomatoes (and whatever else is ready such as peppers, onions, etc., that we need to make chow-chow, salsa, and canned tomatoes) at a local U-pick farm.
Not only will it be productive, getting more done in less time, but as my friend said, “It will be fun!” I can’t wait!!!
