First of all, happy Summer Solstice, the wonderful time just before the days start to get shorter and shorter. I love long days! I also love blackberries! Every Saturday for about the past five, on our way to Afton Station Ron M. and I cruise past a tiny farmers' market in Chelsea to see if the blackberries have come in yet. The two or three farmers there are beginning to recognize my car. Well, today the blackberries were there!!!! They are the biggest, sweetest, juciest berries I've ever seen, and they're just as good this year as last year. Blackberry Cobbler, here I come!
It was a great day at the Station today, too. We visited with folks from Trolihittan Sweden, Omaha NE, South Bend IN, Norton Shores MI, Fort Collins CO, Lumberton TX, Oak Grove MO, Fontana KS, Wolfsburg Germany (I think), and Tulsa, Vinita, and Miami, OK.
