We have reached that period when we are beginning to get some payback from all of the hours I have spent nurturing the garden. We have been eating lettuce and potatoes for a while, but over the last couple of weeks our diet has been full of berries, both strawberries and raspberries. We eat them in our bowl of oats in the morning and as dessert for supper.
A lot of local’s had their raspberry crop severely reduced by the very warm spell followed by a cold snap this spring, but luckily, we were spared. We have been picking raspberries daily and there are more than we can eat out there in the patch. We try to eat as many as we can fresh, because they taste so much better, than when they are frozen.
