I am really trying to garden. It's been a year, and I've already learned a lot. Many things have worked in our humble square foot garden, many did not. I've also planted an apple tree, a blackberry bush and a bunch of other plants and flowers. This year, was our first year for blackberries. I had very low expectations and I must say...they are great! Sam loves going out to pick the purple ones. I am planning on making freezer jam. Sam's only plans are 'smoothilies,' which in her language is smoothies.
