Well, I just have to celebrate just a wee bit. After listening to Heather get all excited about the cucumbers she’s grown in her garden, listening to her talk about Spinach/Artichoke Dip (which is just SO good, I can’t even think about without getting hungry) made with fresh grown spinach, and reading about Nate preparing fresh salsa - again, with home grown ingredients, I just have to end this endless sentence by saying - I HAVE SOMETHING GROWING TOO! SO THERE! NYAH NYAH!
The bonus part is, I didn’t plant it, I’ve never weeded around it, heck, I never even knew it was there, and now I’ve just discovered it, just at the perfect time as it’s ripening beautifully. Now I know you’re all dying to know what it is in my “garden”, and do I have life insurance in case it turns out lethal. Well, folks, here at the Wiz’s house, we have freshly grown, beautifully plump, perfectly sweet, perfect-for-cobbler: blackberries!!! And I could not be happier about it. They are so tasty, my girls love to help pick them (despite the thorns that accompany them), and now I have an excuse to make more cobbler than should legally be allowed. But I have a great cobbler recipe, so if you ever want to stop by, chances are I will have some on hand. (unless DH got to it first.)
Plus, now I get to ignore all the stands selling fresh blackberries, and just laugh at all the poor little people who didn’t have enough sense to stumble upon unknown blackberries in their yard. Poor souls.
Also, on the top of my “hill”, in my “garden” (which I always thought before was just vines), we have chives! Who knew? Not as appealing to the youth in this household, but still very fun to have in the “garden”, and perfect on baked potatoes and such. Maybe there’s a way to store them that I don’t know about. (Hint:If you have advice on how to store chives, I just blatantly asked for it. Also blackberries, although we seem to be consuming them at an alarmingly high rate.) So, if we ever have to use our food storage in earnest, well, since we pretty much just have wheat and sugar down there, I just hope it will be in the summer, and I will be able to say: “Let them eat cobbler.”
