The other day when I posted some pics of the fiddle head pickles I made some of you commented that you would like to see what fiddle heads looked like. I want to point out that these are not the ostrich fern.. They are poison... These are the fiddle head fern which is completely different..
In my email today a sweet reader who attends our church sent me these lovely pics of fiddle heads that grow by the river near
her farm.. She was so kind as to suggest that you girls might like to see them... Thanks, Jackie..
This is what they look like as they pop up through the earth. They are only a few inches taller when you pick them.. Our son Trev picks about 50 pounds every Spring and freezes them as their 3 boys love them.. He washes them in the river many times in order to get rid of the brown paper like covering..
This is what they look like after they have grown up into the fern that they are.. smile..
Here is a close up of them...
They are delicious and taste something like broccoli or green beans or asparagus but much better in my opinion although I do love green beans almost as much.
I hope you enjoyed our little show and tell.. grin..
Jackie also sent me some pics of their first baby lambs....
With their mama..
Jackie must have read that someday I would love to have 3 sheep... smile..
Perhaps someday... smile..
Two more days before the giveaway and no one can follow because Blogger or google or someone is absent.
Anyway... hope you girls have a wonderful weekend.. I still have the flu believe it or not.. It sure lasts a long time although I do feel better.. I just can not eat yet and am weak.. Oh well.. it could be much worse.. Thank you for praying for me...
Tomorrow is the Lord's Day...
He is faithful... Thank you for your blessings, Lord..
