Too close to call

I cannot decide what I like best...making these fabulous jams and jellies, or seeing the look on my customers faces as they dip into our many sample offerings! I had one fellow dancing around in my booth Saturday after he sampled our Margarita Jelly, asking me 'why did you omit the worms?'!!  So far, this month, these three have been neck and neck in the favorite department...but the Raspberry Chambord Truffle is inching up quickly! Which is your favorite?

Spring is here

After a far too long winter, I think we can safely say that Spring is finally making it's way here in southern Maine.  The rhubarb is already bursting open in the garden and you know what that means.. Rhubarb Patch Jam!
We've been busy readying for the opening day of farmers market,been  very busy in the gardens expanding the blueberry beds, transplanting all the herb seedlings and stirring up the jam pots! Today I'm infusing blackberries in Shirah.

 Many thanks to all that answered our survey. I really appreciated all your comments!
Looking forward to another fruitful season, and seeing you all at farmers market. Mark your calendars.. Opening Dates for Kennebunk Farmers Market--Saturday, May 4th.  And for Wells Farmers Market--Every Wednesday beginning May 22.
