Happy Birthday Don!

That is a fine looking pie!  State fair quality!

In keeping with the pie theme, here's a blueberry-raspberry I made yesterday in recognition of my birthday.  Our cultivated berries are coming in like gangbusters, and the wild blackberries are just about to start. 

Not to mention the beans, zukes, broccoli, basil, tomatoes, and lettuces!  Best time of the year . . .

Randy, you have a beautiful and historic place!  I really enjoy the sense of history.  Also I think older houses were better built, no particle board or flimsy materials.  The big tress are beautiful!

When we were looking for a country place, I liked one house that was 100 years old, but it was riddled with termites and carpenter ants.  The next hsd an oil tank that needed state-mandated EPA remediation.  We finally found our current place, house built in generic ranch style in mid 70s and needing a lot of work, but doable.  Unfortunately, lacking that historic, established feel.  There are a few trees from when it was built, but mostly bare.  Many of the trees are ones I planted in the past 5 years.    Well, maybe a future generation will enjoy some shade!

Anywsy, my long winded way of saying you have a very handome home and yard!

Thomas, I'll see what I can find.  Under the porch is a fruit cellar which is pretty neat. The porch is crumbling, however, and in need of repair. Up to this point, I've just "band-aided" it.

Second blueberry pie today.  I put the recipe in the food group.  Getting some sweet corn, peppers, tomatoes, and beans now.  What a great time of year in the kitchen garden.

That is a beautiful porch. Is it too much to ask if you can snap pictures the whole outside house and post it?

I love older houses. It is like living in a museum.

What a gardner, and what a cook, is that Daniel W!

Thanks for the invite Randy.  I'll stop by as soon as Michael Anthony pays me a visit.

Yes, Spud, that's my house, built in 1911. It's about 5 miles from my sesquicentennial farm. You all are welcome to stop by anytime.

Daniel, the pie looks delicious! I'm sure it tasted the same.

Randy, that's a beautiful house!

This year we netted the blueberries, and the result was more than I knew that bush could produce.  Amazing how much those birds usually eat.  So a pie was in order...

Yesterday I got the first of the sweet corn.  It wasn't much, but tasted very good.  That was from the first few plants that germinated this spring.  I think subsequent batches well be more.
