R.I.P. Pyracantha
Last night, while trekking back to the coop to tuck our hens in, we discovered that our twelve foot tall Pyracantha had fallen during the snow storm.
It was a good bush...sigh...but its nickname was "fire thorn" for a reason...kept us watching our step...

After garnishing our wreath, I wondered what else we can do with the berries... Pyracantha jelly? Wiki says they're not poisonous...

so long old friend. our backyard will look a little naked without you.

Not poisonous? You mean I could have been eating them all these years?

hi geo,
yes, you can eat them. with a truck load of sugar. they're super bitter. but i'm still alive...
