Great Year for Raspberries!

~ red raspberry blooms ~
Yup, it's a great year for raspberries - look at all the flower blooms on that cane! We are getting much needed rain - which is great for the raspberries, but horrible for the blackberries. I don't think there will be a blackberry season out here this year - very disappointing as I dearly wanted to make more jam....

But the raspberries will grow & put out a lot of flower blooms, which the bees quite enjoy at this time of year & I'll be picking again in a few weeks.

Just hauled out the last of the berries from the freezer & will make several batches of jam today to make room for the round of harvesting.
