A little aside from pickling, but just as important, another place I hold very near and dear to my heart is Two Boots Farm in Hampstead, MD.
Two Boots Farm is run by Elisa Lane and her husband Doron and it's so wonderful out there! Elisa has been such a huge inspiration to me and is one of the hardest working people I know. Having started Whitelock Farm and moving on to starting her own farm out in Baltimore County, Elisa is doing some wonderful work and when I went to go visit the farm today, everything was looking absolutely beautiful!
So the best part of this trip was when Elisa told me that there are wild raspberry bushes surrounding her farm.
Little did I know....
It didn't end there! Then Elisa took me to the black currant bushes!
I think it's time to put down the pickle for these and pick up the can (can anyone say preserves and jam?!)
