We have raspberries!

Oh, yes! We do!


Several, in fact....


...everyday!


The tallest canes are taller than me!

In a bowl of cereal, in a smoothie, with yoghurt or ice-cream, in a tart, or on their own...


....nothing compares to picking them fresh, ripe and juicily delicious!

It feels like I've waited soooo long for them I can't help but celebrate their arrival!

  11. What lovely pink promises you have there - raspberries are so fragile - I love them fresh from the canes like that with a dusting of sugar and a swoosh of cream. I like them in summer pudding too and in sorbets ah summer - a twinkle in my eye -

  12. Thankyou all. The first ones ever harvested are the tastiest, Sharon :)

    Oh, lovely Sue. Our loganberries are not ripe yet...a bit shady I think.

    If I could send you some, I would Jay!

    Ahh, homegrown straberry jam, made by your daughter, Wendy! Life doesn't get much better than that...lucky you!

    We've been freezing them too, Orkney. Looking forward to pondering over what to put them in. We also have a thornless variety..it's lovely for harvesting - no prickles! Perhaps you have some too?

    Ha, thanks, Celia. At the moment it's eating first, then freezing. Jamming will have to wait until we see if we have enough :)

    It must be all the rain, Ronnie- such a good season!

    They are really good, Debbie, and yes, I feel extremely lucky :) I saw how much they were in the shop the other day and nearly fell over!

    Oh yes, oh yes, keep talking Brydie! *nods vigorously*

    Oh, Sue, snow! We didn't get any this year.

    Jo, they are so delicate it's a pleasure to eat them ripened to perfection on the cane. I haven't made summer pudding but have been tempted to for some time....maybe this summer, lol!
