Can you see Mary in the raspberry patch? This is just outside our front door and the crop is excellent this year.

Rather than let the bluejays have them all she decided to pick some this morning.

It was easy picking as the berries are plentiful and easy to spot when they are ripe.

Raspberries are an excellent food providing, vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. as well as copper, potassium, vitamin K, folate, magnesium and the list goes on.

It looks like an great year for berry picking up here. We are looking forward to elderberries and cranberries later in the season.

Until then we will enjoy the berries we find right outside our door.

Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.


  1. These berries would taste really good on my Greek yogurt.

  2. Yes they would but I think all you can do is dream. Sorry Ruth.
