Farm Fresh Goodness...

This is just the start of all the farm fresh goodness...

Our orchard is 4 years old and this is the first bowl of cherries! 

They are almost too pretty to eat!  

What should we make...
Pie, cobbler, muffins?

I know what my Farmer will pick...
Pie! Pie! Pie!

A quick story about this lovely bowl of humble fruit.

 When we moved to our farm the property had been vacant for several years and saplings were growing in the yard and field.  
We mowed everything with the tractor.  
It was impressive how quickly that took care of the saplings and brush.  
All but one!
There was this little mulberry tree that would not give up. 
It bounced back after being mowed a couple of times.  
My sweet Farmer decided to leave that tough little tree. 

This year it is covered in mulberries.  
I have to make something with this hardy trees fruit.
We are going to try making mulberry jelly.  

We have eggs again!   
Oh, how we've missed fresh eggs.

Just a quick post...
I better get to work on a pie and some jelly!
