Pickin’ and Grinnin’

Today's pickings: 16 cups

Raspberries may not be what bluegrass singers are thinking about while they play, but with raspberry season in full swing, it’s what I do. Pick, pick, pick, and grin! I’ve already had to reinforce the supports for my raspberries once this season, but even with the extra wires, the canes are so loaded with berries they are bent to the ground. (Note to self: Re-do raspberry support system in late fall.)

What to do with all those berries? We eat some on cereal or just out of hand; a few made their way into a Raspberry Cobbler; and many of them have been frozen on a tray and stowed in the freezer for those fall and winter days when fresh raspberries are not in the store, or just plain too pricey. For now, it’s time for pickin’ and grinnin’.

  1. Yum! I have been jealously eying friends raspberry canes. I am very close to throwing caution to the wind and planting them despite the neighborhood bear problem. How can you blame them for wanting that! They look so good!
