We get some watermelons. Who knows where they're from. They're never ripe this time of year though. Just pink, flavorless, and not worth buying. I envy you being able to start some things already. Are you doing container gardening this year? When you plant your raspberries, hope you know to plant them where you won't mind new shoots popping up all over. Great for making new plants. Not so great if it's a place you don't want them. They have a real zest for life and determination to match it. [/quote] I'm not doing containers this year. They didn't work out last year. Right now, I'm trying to come up with a good way to shade the garden without it blowing away. The raspberries I know how to do. Gram had a patch for years and then we got half and my uncle got half. We had them for a long time. I'm just hoping they don't fry like everything else here lately. I love raspberries! Gram used to make jell from hers and when we moved to my parent's house, we had red currant bushes. She used to have me pick them to put with the raspberries. It was the BEST jell! I don't know if currants will grow here. I'll have to order them if I want to try. [/quote] Yeah, seems like they need a lot of water to keep them going. Shade cloth might work in your garden. You could drive some short posts in and put velcro on the post and the cloth to attach it. They have it real reasonable on ebay sometimes. It's not trimmed like the farm supply stores, but it's not the price of farm supply stores either and it doesn't take anything to sew a hem. It's just as good as the kennel shade cloth covers. I love raspberries too. If they have a lot of early spring water they produce a lot for most of the summer. I freeze mine with sugar, then thaw and pour cream over it in the winter. Yum. [/quote]
last year i canned for the first time. wow, i was nervous.
this year, i'm doing better. i have been canning like mad.
if you'd like, tell us your how's and why's. learning to preserve food is one of the most important skills a person can learn.
