day 141

Raspberries are my favorite fruit. At our current house we don’t have a to know if space for a garden but I was able to carve out just enough for a good size raspberry bush. Over the last few years we’ve seen it grow from producing a few berries a year to filling a quart a day. It never ceases to amaze me watching the berries ripen. We pick the berries before we put the boys to bed and it seems impossible that there will be more to harvest the following day. But overnight and throughout the day more ripen. It’s also taught us patience and discernment to which berries are ripe. Pick them too soon and the berries are too tart or sour. There have already been many times where we think a berry is almost ripe but it just needs another day.
