It Happens Fast

On Monday I posted a photo of the raspberries that were ripe.....

And on Wednesday there were more....

And today there were even more!!!

They come on fast... I'm thinking that on Monday I'll be putting the "RASPBERRY" sign up at the bottom of the driveway!

So plan on coming out to the the U-Pick Garden next week for some ripe raspberries....or I'll pick them all myself!


  1. Those raspberries look so yummy! I'll be right over to get some!! :) I just read about your turnip-I'm voting for you to keep an eye on it and harvest it when it is at its best and then have some for you and your family and a tithe to someone else that will use it. Persevere, Evonne
    PS I just picked some sugar and snap peas here. The broccoli and cauliflower is over and green beans are coming on good.
