Our garden's really goin' to town!! The corn's tasselin' and we're already having fried squash on a regular basis! My lilies out front are beautiful this year! When we lived in Georgia, I had some gorgeous double day lilies...finally found some here...they are in full bloom now!
Of course, our meals lately, have included the "recommended" three "messes" of poke salad (or salit, according to my sweet mother-in-law) this spring...you know it "clarifies the blood" according to the "ol' folks"!! I know it sure was good, with some streak o'lean, corn bread, Vadalia onion and sweet tea!! We always have an abundance of the plants growing on our fence rows.
I've got to mention our flock of guineas and their latest farm patrol efforts...this morning, as I was feeding the baby deer his 6AM feeding, our guineas were making a constant racket out next to the barn. I put my boots on, walked down to the fence row and there in the tall grass was the biggest logger head snapping turtle I'd ever had the pleasure of meeting!! He looked like he would've barely fit in a bushel basket! After fussing for over 20 minutes, the guineas walked away as I walked up. I guess it was, "OK, we've alerted you, now you do what you want with the big guy!" I let him go about his merry way...I think he was headed to the creek! Hope all's well with everyone! Be sure to come back by AWESOME ASS ACRES and set a spell!!
