    TA-Da—-Introducing the 2017 crop of Damson Plums! Farmgirls get your canning equipment ready and tie on your favorite apron. My Mom’s jars of Damson Plum jam were a staple in our home growing up. Rich, sweet, and flavorful, these plums make must have kitchen staple if you are lucky enough to have them locally.

      We have our dryers full of them right now. Hubby went on a picking spree this weekend. He has also filled our freezer with raspberries. If you don’t know where Nick is, check the raspberry patch.

        Wonderful bounty!! I would be right there helping Nick and snitching raspberries as I picked.

        Right now I am having lunch on my porch and enjoying a Courtland apple from Michigan. A local grocery store was having an Apple Fest this weekend and had a lot of new crop apples from up north. These Cortland remind me a bit like Honey Crisp but a tad sweeter and with a tougher skin. Oh, I forgot to tell you, remember my apple friend from Maine that I visited a few years ago? He was doing a big booth at the local Organic Farming fair and exhibition two weekends ago. Their CSA blog that I follow said that he was bringing back his popular 2009 graphic t-shirt that he created for sale at his booth. It was a must have so I wrote him asking if I could buy from him since attending the fair was not possible either. He said yes and even remembered me! I am sending you an email of what it looks like. I wore it for Apple Pie Sunday. Apple happiness!
