Berries, Berries, Berries!
We have two little berry fanatics on our hands. We cannot keep enough berries in our house! Luckily, we get quite a few from our CSA every week. In addition, my parents have a raspberry patch in their backyard. One HUNGRY little girl eats them all before we can take any home, but she enjoys them. We planted a blackberry plant behind our house a few years ago, but the deer enjoyed it so much it was down to a stub. We transplanted it to our garden, protected by the fence. Last year it gave us a handful of berries, but this year it is dripping with 'em! They will be ripe pretty soon, and we can't wait!
In the meantime, we have been picking some wild berries that grow in our neighborhood.
We received a new (to us) berry recently from our CSA, the red currant. After John explained that it is a CURR-ent, not a curr-ONT like I've been saying it. Jemma and I plucked them from their stem.
