Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Happy birthday Dad!

You drive me bananas.

Banana tree
No, really. This is my father's banana tree. He of outdoor orchid fame. He has three banana trees in his backyard. Dwarf Cavendish, I believe. They aren't producing fruit this time of year, but I just thought I'd share with you all what we can't grow in the Northern climes.

Yummy backyard bananas

It is hard not to be jealous of those in tropical climes. I try to comfort myself with the thought that they can't grow tulips & daffodils without a big hassle. :)
