You know what a Yankee is?  As folklore has it, in the US, a Yankee is someone who lives north of the Mason-Dixon line. North of the line, a Yankee is someone who lives in New England. In New England, a Yankee is someone who lives in Vermont. In Vermont, a Yankee is someone who eats pie for breakfast.

...For breakfast slice of pie and coffee with cream. Sounds yummy....I ought to try that tomorrow morning.

Comment by Don on Saturday

Hah!  It's been a few years since we made our own ice cream.  We did have some Ben & Jerry's on hand, though the pie eaters around here tend to be purists.  And as Vermonters, oftenwe have pie for breakfast.  With milk or coffee.

   Don,

WHAT! .. no homemade vanilla ice cream topping !?

That, indeed, is a grave sin.

Don, belated happy birthday. I've been out of touch the past few days. A spectacular pie.
Our berries bear early in the summer. The middle of June usually. So they are long gone but still cheap at the grocery store but not local

Thanks, everyone, for the birthday wishes.  A big one (70!) it was, and my wife had planned (for weeks) a wonderful surprise gathering, a catered feast attended by so many old friends.  I was so gratified and humbled.  I really did think that my own pie after a quiet dinner out was going to be the extent of our celebration--which would have been just fine, of course.  So we never did get to the pie until yesterday. 

The last slice:

Don, it sounds like you had a happy birthday.  Nice that your birthday happens at the best time of the year.

Comment by Randall Smith on Saturday

Thomas, you are correct on all accounts. That stump was once a willow tree, ant infested and scraggly. I also had a catalpa tree on the other side of the house cut down (last year). This photo was taken in March--no tree leaves.

When I moved in 40 years ago (1977), I did find a few "antiques", mostly in the basement. A water boiler is too mammoth to remove. No photos-yet.

The house interior is wood framed with pocket doors, etc. It even had a "dumb-waiter" in the kitchen. I've made many changes over the years, but kept the integrity.

Now, back to garden related topics!

  Randall,

  I agree with Daniel..... it is a beautiful house. I see a stump in your front yard. And it looks recently cut down tree. From the size of the stump it must have been a huge old tree.

  I used to do work on older homes (just general handyman stuff)  and will find old newspapers, old coins, real wood ( the woods were actually 2" by 4 " not 1.5" x 3.5"), even old bones.

  So you ever get a chance to find treasures in the old house?

Happy Birthday , Don

Many happy harvesting to come!
