For many, many year I have been cooking and making homemade biscuits. I began cooking when I was nine year old, my mother worked on the farm, hoeing cotton, corn, potatoes, fruis, and vegetables. Later she picked them. I learned to feed the farm animals, gather eggs,milk the cow and churn milk into butter. My daddy helped my mother and he would plow the crops, with mules before he got a tractor. My brothers and sisters worked too, Enjoyable memories. I am contributing this homemade biscuit recipe, also a Wild Blackberry Jam recipe with a blackberry picking story.

Gee it doesn't seem like it's been a year already (but then again, to you it probably does).
Good luck with this years small garden.
We have downsized ours too...just can't do it all anymore.
