Blackberry Ink? Who knew?

Homestead Blessing's is giving away a copy of their new DVD: The Art of Crafting. Check it out! I am completely fascinated with the idea of blackberry ink. What a fun albeit messy activity to do with the kids.

For Grandma

Along the fence line there are thorn less blackberries
Sugar snap peas, lettuce sprouts, pablano peppers, green peppers, jalapenos, zucchini, mustard greens and green beans fill this bed.
Butternut squash, sugar snap peas, lettuce, leeks, broccoli riab, spinach, radishes
We are feeling incredibly blessed right now. While so many others have put there garden to rest for the season, mine is still producing. No, it's not warm here in the NW but for whatever reason, the weather is still favorable for our garden. Yesterday Em and I harvested green beans, yellow summer squash, radishes, jalapenos, a green pepper and snacked on some yellow pear tomatoes. There is plenty more to harvest but we're only taking a bit at a time to enjoy the freshness. My Grandma has asked for pictures of the garden and the blog is the easiest way for her to see them. Grandma, you were thought about yesterday. xoxoxoxo
