Bumper Crop

There aren’t many upsides to a drought except for the lack of mosquitoes and the abundance of

saskatoons. Like a serious abundance. Like so so so so many. Yes so many that I needed to use all those so’s!

The native prairie crunches as you walk across it, parched for rain. The wildflowers are stunted and sparse. Clouds roll in and then move on without any moisture being left up here on our hill. The vegetables and the hay crop both look pretty dismal.

But those saskatoons mean we won’t be short vitamin C disguised as pie or muffins or with dumplings, Saskatoon rhubarb compote or just plain and simple on my morning yogurt. Or any other of the many ways we love to eat my FAVOURITE berry.

Ah the joy of the drought struck sskatoon. Big and juicy and perfect straight off the bush.

If you are local and looking for berries text or call me and I can set you up! Did I mention how good they are? So so good!!

I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

  1. I think it’s because they dropped all their rain here at the foot of the Rockies. The Bow is EXTREMELY high — it’s finally starting to slowly subside, but still high, after no rain since Tuesday. 🙂 Sorry you’ve got a draught — delighted you’ve got an abundance of Saskatoons. Fortunately, here by the river, we have bats and thus, no mosquitoes either! 🙂
