Season for Raspberries
Trev thinks I finally caved in about buying a deep freeze so he could store pigs in it. Really I want to be eating raspberries all year round. Jam is fine, but I'm not into eating toast, so my raspberry intake plummets out of season.
We have 3 rows approximately 15 metres long. It's going to be a lot of raspberries. They're currently flowering and it's frightening being inside as the bees dive bomb the white netting by the thousand. Definitely have my mouth closed when I'm in there.
Trev's been working on repairing the netted enclosure for a while. The raspberries were growing through the sides and we needed to put in extra wires to hold the sides out. Go your hardest blackbirds, I think we've got your number!
