The First Picking

The first handful of raspberries were ripe in the
garden. Not enough for a cobbler, but they
sure tasted good on my morning yogurt!

  6. Huh. I can't even remember the last time I ate a raspberry. Funny how life's simple pleasures often get sidetracked...

  19. I just love the idea that you have all these wonderful things growing in your yard.

    Growing up, we had fruit trees, grapes and berries. (Our berries were boysenberries, and oh, the cobbler...

    Guess I'll just have to be happy with our two tomato plants.

    Yes, Betsy...I'm worn out partying!!! One more to go.

  21. And the thing I love about fresh raspberries are those cute little "hairs" on them.

  22. Ms Gibson ~ thank you! It's an old dish. It's called a berry bowl, I think. It has little feet and it just the right size to wash couple of cups of berries.

  24. There is nothing like the summery taste of those first fresh red raspberries. Lovely photo, too.

  25. I was just out in my patch today and I see that I am overdue in the picking. The rain has kept me out of the yard, but I bet we can have enough for pie. I hope you get more berries.
