Berry Buffet



The state of Washington is known for apples. However, raspberries are also prolific. Just yesterday I picked a bowl full of berries and today I picked another bowl. As I picked, it seemed like the raspberries got ripe right before my eyes. Several people in my neighborhood grow raspberries. So we always have plenty to pick and plenty to share.

Yesterday I made scones with raspberries and chocolate chips mixed into the batter. Last night we tossed berries into our green salad. This morning we topped our oatmeal with raspberries. I even froze a few for someone else.

Raspberries are filled with vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium, and fiber.  A treat that's healthy and tastes good!

Even though it’s the first day of autumn, we’ll enjoy a sweet harvest for a few more weeks.

Happy autumn,

We love raspberries, but always end up eating them fresh and run out too quickly.

You can't beat raspberry and white chocolate muffins, or home made raspberry jam

Heather, Mmmmm, yummmmm, raspberries are a favorite of mine. I am going to plant them in my garden. How do you protect them from the birds and critters? I suspect I would have to completely enclose them with some kind of protection. I have groundhogs, wild turkeys, deer, raccoons, squirrels, and who knows what else that probably would love to munch on them as well. Have a great raspberry day.
