Since I officially DO NOT have a life, outside of the walls of our Garden . . . I thought I’d share.
My hubbie is out there at about 5:00 A.M. on the dot . . . EVERY MORNING!
I however feel the need to put on Makeup and do my hair before joining him.
I must be insane! By the time I burrow deep in the ruins of the Raspberries, along with the Grasshoppers and the Daddy Long Legs I look like HELL! I literally look like I have at least 15 cats, because my arms and legs are scratched from top to bottom. Tonight, I looked at my hubbies arms . . . his are basically scratchless! I just don’t get it. He doesn’t get me! Anyway, if it sounds like I’m complaining . . . I am! However, I’m thankful for a full freezer and happy neighbors who have received nice big Raspberries, all picked and hand delivered. We have also been eating new little potatoes, peas and carrots for a couple of weeks now. The corn and beans will soon be ready, and I’m trying to gear for that. Just so you know, my hubbie is in his 7th heaven while he’s buried in the garden. I just follow like a puppy dog . . . act like I’m enjoying it and occasionally bite him every now and then! I’m also Thankful that I have a hard working husband who is trying to make me into a Farm girl . . . just ainta gonna happen!
This seems to be what takes the most time.
They need picked daily . . . We have a lot of them. The berries are as big as your thumb!
They do make wonderful treats though.
Raspberry Blueberry Cream Tarts and Huckleberry Raspberry Freezer jam.
