Many condolences to all our Commonwealth friends and colleagues on the passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen shepherded the Commonwealth through the horrors of WWII, and the fear of the Cold War, GWoT, and multiple either crises, with an unparalleled optimism for the future. Her tact in diplomacy, and unwavering love for her Commonwealth and dedication to its allies will be missed.

Y’all!! It’s been a minute since our last post! We’ve been so busy on the the past few weeks, getting this year’s newly grafted trees situated and other summer time chores, but we had to take a breather to post this amazing photo of some wild fruit down by the creek! It’s going to be a great year for this largest fruit of . Now us the time of year to start looking fur this amazing fruit through its native range here in and throughout much of the Easter . We will be some named cultivars onto our wild volunteers, and encouraging some small groves to develop over the next few seasons. We’ll keep you updated on our progress, but in the meantime get out there and see if you [email protected] some of these hidden green gems!

Y’all!!! It’s berry season, and you have to try this bumble berry pie! We’ve had a surplus of wild at the and didn’t have quite enough to make or so we decided to make a ! If you didn’t know bumble berry is a mix of different types of in season berries - it’s a great flavor that is bright and sweet with a nice acidic balance. This is a super easy pie we modified from rhubarb pie. Best to make the filling in a large bowl. You’ll need about 6 cups of berries - we mixed all our together , wild blackberry and Ouachita blackberry. Add 2 cups of chopped rhubarb. Add in about 3/4 cup of sugar (more or less up to 1 cup depending on the sweetness of the berries and your sweet tooth 🤣). We added the zest and juice of half a lime for brightness, but you could substitute this with a lemon or skip it all together. Mix the berries, zest, juice, and sugar all around in the bowl, and add 1/3 cup flour (this will help thicken the juice), and mix until the flour is fully incorporated. We used pie crust, which made this pie super easy to pull together last minute , but any good pie dough recipe will do the trick too. We put the pie dough into a lightly greased glass 9 inch pan, and added the filling. We then decorated the top with an open lattice pattern (really easy, just alternate over/under) you could also use a cookie cutter and place pieces of pie dough on top slightly overlapping, or duly cover the top with dough (just remember to put plenty of vent holes in the top to allow the steam to escape). Dab some milk on top of the pie dough and sprinkle with sugar (this helps give it the golden color). Bake the pie in a preheated 475 degree oven for 15 minutes, then drop the temperature to 375 and bake for an additional 30 to 35 minutes. Let it cool (or not - we love warm pie with ice cream 🍨 😋) and enjoy!! Let us know how you like it!!

We’re planting out some Heatmaster for an extended season here . By staggering our planting times, also known as succession planting, we are able to stretch out the crop of this great heat tolerant determinate 🍅 variety. We also heavily, with a two to four inch top dressing of , to give our plants an extra boost of slow release feed, and added protection from the summer heat. Mulching with any organic matter is a great way to increase the water retention ability of your soil while also increasing its quality and structure over time. The mulch also helps to suppress new w**d growth making caring for your plants that much easier.

Y’all!!! Our are just now coming into full in at our little , and they are simply glorious! This is “Teasing Georgia” a medium climber, and is simply perfect located near a sitting area for passers by to stop and smell the roses 🤓 (this one has a beautiful sweet old tea rose scent). The dark contrasting purple Columbine self-seeded in front of the rose makes the yellow so much more vivid. An under planting of would also do the same plus give you some scrumptious flowers and leaves for ! What’s your favorite and why?

Test batch number one of our Northern Virginia is in the books! We collected a little under 2 quarts of sap today from 15 trees (not quite optimal flow just yet) and couldn’t wait to start boiling! When all was said and done we ended up with just over an ounce of buttery nutty and oh sooooo good rich sweet syrup. Black walnut syrup is a distinct flavor all its own, coming closest to Grade A maple syrup with its delicate buttery taste. With a 40 to 1 ratio (the amount of sap you need to get syrup) we’re hoping for a bit more flow from our trees over the coming weeks 🤓
