Elderberry



The elderberry is blooming.  It's bigger than the chicken coop now and loaded with flowers. 

I planted them in 2013, from cuttings I rooted myself.   After almost killing them with love, I backed off and let the ducks fertilize them and the excess water from the garden keep them good and moist.  They are so happy. 

My goal for this year is to figure out how to make a syrup or jelly that I can eat [with no sugar,  honey, maple syrup, agave, etc.]   That's going to take a bit of creative problem solving.
