    Wow, that seems way more expensive than here. My tree is fairly young around 4 years and is loaded! They are soooo good and so far no animals have bothered them. :fl

    We're enjoying a rhubarb/cherry crisp. The rhubarb is from our garden and I bought the organic cherry pie filling.

    We are picking zucchini, tomatoes, and peppers. I am happy to report the netting has kept the deer from the pepper plants. Not a single leaf has been touched and my trail cam shows the deer passing the peppers without so much as a glance.

    Romas are coming in, some pretty big. Eggs. My chickens get all sorts of treats, like all of the grass and weeds I pull, so I eat garden "seconds" every time I fry one up.

    I agree with this. Not only are the chickens providing pest removal around my garden, but they clean up any garden extras or salad making scraps and turn them all into food too. Then I kill some in the fall and they have turned grass, bugs, worms, fruit and veggies into meat. It's like magic!
