Black raspberries

I had a lovely hummingbird go after my red, white and blue shirt yesterday!  I think he thought I was a flower!  I found a big patch of black raspberries near my job and picked a coffee mug full.  I am going back Saturday with a big ziploc to get more!  My garden is really coming along.  My jalepeno's are really producing and I have a few habenero's.  Also the bush beans have baby beans on it (only 2 plants survived the squirrels) and my peas are almost as tall as me and flowering.  I have one peapod starting.  Tomatoes are doing good.  Lots of cherries and regulars.  I will have enough to show for the fair at least.  Next weekend, the 15th is pageant rehearsal and also the day I turn in my entries.  I have been keeping a good eye on the wild flowers this year.  I am doing a wildflower boquet.  I think I will make it large and put it in a decorative pitcher that I have.  I am also doing on of just foliage and one in a teacup!  Also entered a dahlia which are just getting ready to bloom.  Hopefully one will cooperate and be perfect for fair day.  Ok got to get ready for work.  Graphic is from Sugar, she just started a new graphic journal!

Sounds as if your garden is coming along good, now if those pesky squirrels will just leave them along. Good luck getting your flowers displayed for the fair. Don't forget to get some pictures for us of your entries. Helen

Have you tried cutting those jalepenos in half, removing the seeds, filling with cream cheese, wrapping with bacon (secured with a toothpick) and cooking on the pit (grill)?  yum!  -  Barbara

I ENJOY JALAPENOS THOUGH SOMETIMES MUST LAY OFF FOR A WHILE TO LET THE SKIN GROW BACK ON MY TOUNGE.    sam
