Harvested & ate my first ever home-grown raspberries today!

brittneyt2(6b)June 6, 2013

I planted several varieties of raspberry plants this spring. Today I watered them and found 4 berries that were ripe! I was going to give them all to my husband- he loves raspberries and I'm not a big fan. But I decided to try one.....and the rest is history. I'm officially a raspberry lover now that I've had home grown instead of the grocery store stuff. They are Boyne variety & they taste like candy to me! Now I can't wait for the other varieties to ripen so I can taste them as well!!

Yes, i added a bunch more bushes this year. A few years ago, same thing, that first berry was great! I should have 5 to 600 berries this year, over a thousand next year! My first berries are about 3 weeks away this year.
