All the hard work does have its rewards. They come in the form of beautiful flowers, sweet little hummingbirds, and yummy fruits!
Our raspberry harvest was huge this year. This is just a small sample of what we picked. I was able to freeze some as well, but I really don't think they will last until winter.
Our first blackberry. They are huge and we have so many for such a small amount of plants. I'm looking forward to having enough to be able to freeze these as well (and make jam too!)
I picked these strawberries last night and there are still lots left at various stages of ripeness. I will miss having fresh strawberries on my morning cereal so I am enjoying them while they are here and plentiful (and sooooo good!!)
My tiny garden can't produce all the fruits and vegetables I would like, so I feel very lucky that we have so many different places to get fresh, local produce. Yesterday, I stocked up on local peaches, plums, nectarines, corn, beans, cabbage, cherries... I couldn't help but feel that we live in a really wonderful place.
