cape cod traditions on gardenista this week

Solvi helps with bayberry harvest.

This week on Gardenista, I featured two DIY projects celebrating the bounty of Cape Cod berries. The first, hand-dipped bayberry candles, starts with harvesting berries and goes right through to hand-dipping them (a thoroughly enjoyable process). The second is a recipe for a Cape Cod culinary classic, homemade beach plum jam. (I had some on my toast this morning. So yummy. Sweet, yet a little tart.) Enjoy.
