Berries Are on the Way

The wild berries are coming in. There are a lot of these bushes around the 1840's Farm, the family farm in the Finger Lakes region. My favorites are the whites, as they seem so much sweeter than the red/black berries. My favorite way to eat these is to just stand at the bushes and chow down. But I do throw some in the freezer and leave some for the birds and whoever else.

I also have a few cultivated raspberries growing as well, compliments of some little critter who was spreading some seeds!  However, they are much smaller at this point.

Cukes Blossoming

The first blossom on the Japanese cucumber plant (as it isn't a "vine" yet). Except for some of the various wild berries, this is the first garden blossom for the year!

Onion Chives

The onion chive blossoms are out and as usual, not disappointing in taste. Tried on this morning and it tasted just like a piece of fresh onion! I look forward to these every year.

Justice For Harambe

This situation made me sick. Parents can't bother to watch their kid and the Harambe, the only victim here, pays the price. Poor judgement on ALL sides! 

 I hope these parents are charged with whatever they can be hit with, including the death of this animal. 

Just a few weeks ago 2 lions were killed in another zoo (non US I believe) because some idiot wanted to commit suicide in the lion enclosure. And maybe it is time for the zoos to come up with a faster working tranquilizer to protect their animals from the idiots who go to visit. 

When will animals stop paying for human stupidity? What a waste.

Dandelion Head Harvest

Harvesting dandelion heads today for seed. I want to have a controlled patch, so I thought I would go out and gather heads that have gone to seed. Because there is no dew this morning (meaning it will probably rain today), it was a good time to get the dry heads before the seeds scattered.
