A persimmon happy dance. A vision of joy.
Daniel, if we hurry really fast and set up production, we can make and market honey buckets!
Strawberries have taken-over a large part of the garden and produced a huge amount. Two weeks ago I saw a lot of large red ones that looked ripe so I ate some. Un-uh. Not ripe. Every couple of days I ate some, and still not ripe.
A week ago, a woman from the government organization that helps people with low income and seniors knocked on my door and ask if I wanted her to pick them for me. It sounded like she saw that there were so many that looked so ripe, that were not being picked, that perhaps no one here was able to pick them.
I told her that I was able, and they did look ripe, but the taste said no. Anyway, I then went out and picked a huge number of them because I didn't want her to think I was letting them go to waste.
Shouldn't have cared what she thought because most of them were still not ripe. They tasted like store bought ones. Today, I tasted some and found a lot were finally ripe, so I picked another huge amount. My raspberries are also starting to ripen, so I picked those also. Yummy!
For newcomers, Randys family owned the ground for 175 years (correct me if I am wrong, Randy) and now is in the care of one of Randy's daughter's family. Their newsletters are the best I have seen and their farm looks carefully planned and managed. Here is their newsletter address:
Randall, sorry about the loss of trees and greenhouses your family experienced.
Sauteed garden carrots (in olive oil), cut on the bias, with caramelized onion and fresh dill are a wonderful side dish.
Joan, thanks for the suggestions of the foods to season with dill.
Spud, remember all that work you put into creating healthy soil?
Well, your reward is you get very fine plants as a result!
Spud, that is a very nice plant for your fence.
If you want dill in some other place, just harvest the seeds when they are ripe and toss them wherever you want them. The birds will eat a bunch but birds also scratch in the ground and they will do the tilling and planting for you.
I slice cucumbers and put them in vinegar with dill seed or weed, those little leaves that grow, they make very nice seasonings for roasts or fish and chicken. They sparkle a salad.

I like dill seed or leaves in cabbage salad, with both a vinegar dressing or a creamy dressing.
One of my favorites is sour cream with cucumber slices and dill leaves.
Cottage cheese and yogurt work well with a sprinkling of dill weed.
