It is June 3rd and we have raspberries! This has to be a record breaking early coming out for these delicious berries.
Tonight I was out in the garden with my husband and he spotted our very first raspberries of the season. We have already devoured every ripe one, but can’t wait for even more in just a few days.
If you have the space in your yard and live in the Pacific Northwest, you must grow raspberries. They are easy to grow, delicious, great to freeze, and expensive to buy from the grocery store.
We have a 25 sq. ft patch of land on the side of the yard that the raspberries occupy, the perfect way to frame in a yard. Planting them along the side of the yard could also make it easy for your to frame them in using the fence (if you have one). You will need to find a way to tie them up as they get very big and start to hang over.
From this point through the summer, we will pick raspberries every couple of days with plenty to eat now and to freeze for eating through the fall and winter. Enjoying delicious fruit and saving money.
