Today's smoothie: beet greens, fresh raspberries, banana
Well, I'm pleasantly surprised. While out on one of our evening turns (that's Jane Austen's term for a stroll in case you haven't heard that before), Jim pointed out to me wild black raspberry shrubs & cherry trees with bright red and black cherries along the foot path near Brewster Road in Rochester Hills (RH).
We're crashing here temporarily with my parents while waiting for our new home to be ready in Pittsburgh and, while RH likes to think it's the country with it's ridiculous two-lane roads (with a population of almost 70,000, who are they kidding?) that cause aggravatingly long commutes (it takes Jim 60 minutes to travel from downtown Royal Oak to here), we discovered a bit of its farm past. There are grooves in the trees on the easement along Brewster Road planted with pines but guess what? Nature comes back as evidenced by both our raspberry shrub and cherry tree finds. We picked at least $5 worth of each for free. Which was good because we couldn't make it to the Farmers' Market last Saturday.
Aren't they beautiful? And they were so sweet!
They were a special treat with my muesli!
