Exciting! I think this may be the first picture I’ve taken of my new garden where you can’t see soil between all the plants. Things are getting bigger but it’s really mostly about the angle. 😉

What a wonderful thing to come home to!

Unfortunately we are in the middle of a kitchen reno so I can’t try any yummy looking recipes that others have recently posted, so at our house we are eating and freezing as many as possible at the moment.  But I am bookmarking this recipe for next year:

Recipe: Saskatoon berry drink mix, two ways.
