Berry Excited




Today I have two newsworthy items to share: the hailstorm didn't damage my strawberries, which are planted on the leeward side of the garage. My vegetable garden, windward, took a hit; but I think it's early enough in the growing season that most things will recover. The Lord was gracious to allow time to replant the things that won't.

I am also excited to discover, and report to you, that my sister MaryM just started her own blog on Mother's Day. You can take a look at it over here.
Welcome to Blogland, Sis!

    That is great news! On both of the stories.
    Welcome to sister Mary, I will pay her a visit. That's worth a party, hehe.
    I am sorry for the strawberry. I am almost sure it's life was not expanded very much longer and it found it's way into someone digestive system, hehe.

    Oh and Kc...on your first comment: curiosity killed the cat...eh, rat in this case. Okay, hamster. (grin)

    God's Grace.

    hey Karen!

    no, no, she didn't break up with me (Thank God!!).
    it was "just" a job opportunity that didn't work out (but it was something really important to me.

    The strawberry looks really good! Ours come from Mexico or California. I'm glad your garden will recover. It looked like the hail stones were fairly small, but a lot of them.
    Sister, MaryM, is shaping up pretty fast on her blog. It looks good.
    Her rhubarb recipes sound good, but we don't grow rhubarb around here. The winters aren't cold enough.
    When we go north we try to rustle a whole lot of rhubarb.

    Nothing beats a spring strawberry from one's own garden. Perfection! Glad the hail didn't take a toll.

    I didn't realize it was strawberry season already.
    That looks really good! :]

    Hi there- I am glad the hailstorm did not damage your strawberries! I think that strawberry would look perfect on top of a piece of cheesecake! I liked your slogan 'A Hail of a Thyme!' My husband said that sounded like something I would say! I have never seen hail like that in my life!
