And Little Red Berries Danced In Her Head.....

Since I have lived on this island I have been more in tune with nature and the simple life. And with the direction this country is moving, we all better start!

My recent adventures have included tromping through thorny bushes, slippery hills, bees, spider webs and the occasional slug. Because it's that time of year again, time for Salmonberries!!! Actually we should of been gathering them a month and a half ago, but better late than never (like last year, not one berry). I found a great spot and have three gallons already...would like at least 3 more gallons. It may sound like a lot to you, but I have berry fever and need to make enough jam to get me through the winter. Now I just need to learn to make peanut butter!!

Things I make with Salmonberries....

  • Jam
  • Dog Treats
  • Barbecue Sauce
