Cheater Experience No.3
I've lived her for four years and this is by far the best crop of saskatoons I've ever had. There are so many! I could easily have filled this bowl to the brim 2 or 3 times over. My nanking cherries are coming in just as heavy. Kia keeps calling them blueberries. I'm okay with this, as they substitue wonderfully in recipes for blueberries and we made a delicious batch of saskatoon berry muffins for Family Home Evening. Yum!
Weeding revealed a few other treasures around the yard that I thought I'd share some flowers of the season in closing. The orange flowers in my planter are nasturtiums that I started from seed, they are a great annual that grows from seed outdoors nicely in our northern climate.
One of my favorite garden flowers of the moment above: Black Eyed Susans. I dream of a huge clump of these in my back woodland garden. Time and patience for that one.
