Title A Gunnison Valley Poet
Description them. Me did about ^OQ quarts each summer to provide for our family of nine for our season's use. Topped on fluffy hotcakes or waffles, there was nothing better on a Saturday morning. Sometimes the rhubarb was used to ir.akc red mush, but I preferred the red mush with the red currants. I remember the many tedious hours I spent picking the tiny red berry clusters. Hy reward was the red mush or a bowl full of currants topped with thick cream and sprinkled with sugar. Currant jelly always found a place among the rows of jama and jellies in the fruit pantry. Gooseberries were no less tedious to pick and stem than were the currants, but a gooseberry pie was well worth the effort. In the 1920's there was time to pick fruit, to preserve it and no restrictions on eating all that bread and jan with plenty of newly churned butter and tall glasses of rich milk* (No worry about cholesterol in those days.) There was time to sit in the tall grass under thr trees and talk or dream. In the spring there was time to find purple violets and in the fall, time to adorn the supper table with a bouquet of yellow golden-rod that bloomed in abundance as it hung over the garden fence. "The goldenrod was a reminder that on the first of September my father and mother recited their wedding vows, and many years later that became ray wedding anniversary date also. Those flowers too are gone, "but on a fall day, some-tines there is a smell of preserves cooking, a glimpse of sone goldenrod against an old fence and all the sweetness and security of those days in the orchard come flooding back and take me home again. 94
