Links: Cherries, Musk Melons, and Winners

July 11, 2016(updated on April 27, 2023)
flat of currants

I went to the farmers market this morning, intending to pick up eggs, peaches, and some salad greens. I came home with everything on my list, plus four ears of corn, a giant musk melon and a flat of red and white currants from Three Springs Fruit Farm. This happens to me often in July. There is just so much produce. I am powerless to resist it.

It’s been a few weeks since I did a link round-up, so the list is a bit longer than normal. There’s good stuff here, though. Take the time to wade through!


It’s been a while since the Bee’s Wrap giveaway closed, but I’ve yet to post the winners (oops). However, without further ado, our winners are #109/Katie B., #271/Karley, and #302/Jessica D. Another giveaway will be live soon, so stay tuned!

Sharing is caring!

  • Oh! I hope to see a recipe with your currants on the blog. A friend has a currant tree that I’m subtly trying to have them let me pick all the currants for myself. I think their currants are black currants?

  • Currants! You have currants!

    I was able to get currants just ONCE in Southern California at a very large Vons store. Haven’t seen them since.

    At the time I bought all they had and then went back and bought the rest. I made an awesome Raspberry Currant Rose Geranium jam. I put them in small jars so I could nurse them along but I’m out now. I so want to make some more but have no currants.

    I’ll be going to that Vons tomorrow morning in the hopes they got some currants in this year.

  • Thanks for gathering these recipe links- they are fascinating and I’m feeling guilty lingering over them when I should be working! Especially enjoyed reading the elderflower cordial post.
