And the raspberries...





Curtis is home on a (much too short) break from school.  The timing is perfect for "his" raspberries.  He picked a bucket and a half today.  The portion that wasn't eaten out of hand is waiting in the fridge to be served with Caity's home made granola scones for breakfast tomorrow. 

Since another freeze is expected and the raspberry canes still have lots of unripe berries on them Curtis painstakingly covered them with plastic until the cold weather is past.  It should warm up in a day or two and hopefully we will be able to allow the rest of the berries to ripen.

Wow! Those razz-berries look really good! The only thing I can't figure out is why I haven't been invited over to finish the 'leftovers'... :)

Mmm.. yummy! Hey, if you need someone to pick the rest of the raspberries once Curtis goes back to Idaho... I hire out for harvesting/picking-type jobs...

I'll send my resume.
