Here's a photo of Jacy watering the concord grape.

The grape was completely stripped of leaves by the goats in the spring but it came back.

The bees work the borage while jacy works the blackberries.

The borage was planted from seed next to fence in our cement blocks used for the permanent raised beds. The blackberry was here when we arrived a few years ago. We can pick huge berries since it is watered and protected from deer.

I love smoking with nothing but wood -beef & fuel both from farm
