We will be starting our summer canning, including several jars of salsa either next week or the following. Unfortunately we will not have enough peppers or tomatoes to use our own. We will hit the cheap wholesale grocery stores and the farmers markets for our produce. Because we are originally from Ca, have lived int TX and NM you can pretty much guess we like our salsa darn hot.

The only think I have enough to do anything with yet is basil. I am making pesto this afternoon or tomorrow.

We are still getting local blueberries and blackberries.

Also tomatoes and now watermelon.

Oddly, the woman at the market says they aren't getting
local peaches, yet. Instead they have some from S Carolina.

The late freeze this spring and then the rapid transition
to summer temps damaged quite a few crops.

well wherever they come from they sure are good this year. We are about out of local blueberries and the blackberries are still pricey except as I have mentioned in our yard. Unfortunately the deer have a better eye for ripe ones than we do and they eat them before we hardly see them. rwafnho

I have deer that pass by my yard on a daily basis,
and someone said they are traveling to and from
a nearby blackberry patch.

TREx, are you seeing a lot of fawns right now? I have deer in my yard often too and this year I'm seeing a LOT of fawns compared to the last few years. One doe has triplets. I'll often have over 5 fawns at a time on the hill in front of my house. Even saw a pie bald fawn. I guess it was a good rut last season, lol.

Yes, I am seeing quite a few fawns.
I don't think I have seen more than a couple from any one doe,
but I have seen up to six deer at a time in my yard.
(No idea why they like my yard.)

And yes, deer are fast, but I don't think they are that fast!

(Still trying to figure out what rwafnho means. Is it related to covfefe?)

regarding the "honor system"

A guy about 8 miles from me recently retired from his huge garden ( vegetables and berries) .
He sold everything along a state hwy using the honor system.

I saw him recently and inquired about the honesty of people in the Ozarks .
I asked , " are most people honest "
He replied, " SOME are"
I was disappointed hearing that.

I think a comment like he made is more a matter of attitude than anything: some people have a positive approach to life, some a middle of the road and others more of a negative. My guess, from what I have seen in the 10 years we have lived here, you have a lot more honest than dishonest people.

On Hwy 74 from Jasper to Ponca, there is a sign for campfire wood with lots of wrapped bundles of wood. It's completely done by honor system. Take your firewood, leave $5 per bundle. I can't imagine the seller would continue to do this if they were being robbed with any consistently. I love it that I live in a place where this is done.
