The last week in June, how can this be? We are having such a wonderful summer with rain and cool weather it gives us lots of back porch time, so come sit with me on the back porch today and we will just enjoy some of this Blackberry Cobbler that I am sharing with you. Our Blackberry bushes have been really producing some awesome berries. Have you been able to get some fresh vegetables or fruit from your garden or farmers market? I can't wait to see what wonderful summer creation you are bringing to share with us today, so lets get it on the table.

Grandma's Summer Camp

When our kids were home from school in the summer they always helped with the gardening, cooking, canning and general task that taught life skills. When they got older and began to bring their children to Grandma's for summer visits, I began to call that time Grandma's Summer Camp. I tried to always have some special project that they could complete in the time that they were with us and yet one that would teach a life skill. We have had everything from rigging your fishing pole, boat safety,outdoor camping skills, to meal planning, and sewing projects. At our Grandma's Summer Camp 2014, we did some gardening, meal planning, cooking 101, and a craft project where we made our own wrapping paper.

We Are Off To The Market To Fill The Shopping List From Our Meal Planning
