Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Farmers' Market This Morning

Earlier this morning I headed to town to our annual Vicksburg's Farmers Market looking for some tomatoes.  I was able to purchase some and also ran into some friends who have a stand every year at the market.  It was good to see Rosemary again who makes different varieties of pepper jelly and homemade jams with help from Joe Harrison.  I bought a jar of lemon pepper jelly and blackberry jam. Lemon pepper jelly is great on a block of cream cheese with crackers.  I also found some fig preserves made by Dogwood Hollow Farm of Seminary, MS.  

When I was little we had a fig tree in our backyard and I was forever climbing in it and eating all the figs.  I was also allergic to the milk that came from the stems if it broke and will develop a rash.  One day, my parents cut the tree down and that was the end of that!  I really love figs and look forward to coming to the market or any flea market to find some fig favorite!

Check out Parsley, Sage & Thyme by Rosemary at the corner of Jackson and Washington Streets at the Vicksburg Farmers' Market!  for great homemade jelly and jams!
