Fresh Red Raspberries Are Here!

My garden is going crazy with the heat we have had. Evidence of this can be found in the red raspberry bushes. My raspberries are about 3 weeks ahead of schedule, but they are amazing! I can't tell you how many we have just eaten off the canes without even bringing them in from the garden. Yum!

The ones that do make it inside, we have enjoyed in a variety of ways. Mainly fresh, but they are really good over vanilla ice cream. If they keep the pace they are at right now, I think I may be freezing some. We still have plenty of jam from last year so I think we'll just freeze some for eating later.  For now, I think we will just enjoy eating as many fresh as possible! They are so good! I highly recommend dedicating a space in your garden for red raspberries. They are relatively easy to take care of and the harvest is well worth it!


  1. Wow, great raspberries! We do have dedicated space for them, but they bear late in the fall and we lose most of it to frost(:
