The Raspberries are On!

For last Tuesday's CSA, we picked raspberries and it was hard work. We were really a few days early; there was one ripe here, a couple two feet down........and so on. Today, the raspberries are ready. Loaded, red, ripe, branches drooping! We got busy and phoned some of the U-pick customers on our wait list and lined them up for the next few days. Then left a message for one of our customers wanting us to pick and we jumped on and started picking. Fast and easy picking compared to last Tuesday. And are they good! It was Boyne getting picked today: juicy, sweet but tart, and warmed by the sun as we were picking.
