It's not much, but it's a start. Last year our biggest raspberry pickings were the first part of August. I think they're going to be a tad earlier this year, due to all the rain we've had.
Picking raspberries isn't fun. You have to wear long sleeves and jeans in the hottest part of the year, and fight with mosquitoes and thorns, not to mention the net if you put one over the top of the berries to keep the birds from eating them all. But I'm thankful for the berries. This variety, whatever it is, makes especially delicious jam!
More produce. The peapods draining, after being blanched, almost ready for the freezer. My husband made this great hardware cloth basket, a basket that is large enough to get a lot of peas blanched at once - no monkeying around here! - and nearly fills a 14" diameter pot. It may not be pretty, but it's very functional! I kept out some peapods to use in a sirloin stirfry later in the week.
...and even more produce! We had our first green beans from the garden last week. They are amazing!
I've got to get to the Farmers' Market and see if they still have blueberries. What are you eating these days from your garden or the Farmers' Market?
