Adam and I met on a chat room when we were 17. It was 4 years before we met in person. We have spent most of our married life in Georgia but we are finally back in Utah where we a few acres and hope to start a little homestead soon. We have 7 dogs and 2 cats. I like all things crafty, active, pioneery and outdoors and this is the place where I record all I'm learning and doing.
Today I went to Coalville to visit the historic museum in the basement of the City Hall. It was quite cluttered and their notes were repeated all over the place but I really enjoyed seeing some of the items they had on display. They had a room for the kitchen, a bedroom, a mining/agriculture room, a creamery, a parlor (I think), a general store, seems like there was one more room but I can't recall what was in it.
The other reason for the trip was to go to the extension office. There are lots of berries/fruit growing around here and I wanted to find out if they are edible and what they are so I know in the future. I brought in 5-6 different fruits but he could only confirm two of them (and one I found out for sure on the internet). Can you guess what they are?
1. night shade (lethal if swallowed) 2. teeny tiny crab apples 3. hawthorne berries (notice the thorn on the limb, it's just a small one)
I had already decided those were hawthorne berries but I just wanted to make sure before spent hours harvesting the berries. It's supposed to be really good for your heart. I'll just freeze them and take them to Boise where I have all the tools I need to process it into syrup and can it. :o)
