We grow raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, Concord grapes, and strawberries and cherries if we get lucky. The blueberries and the raspberries are starting to turn.
After checking our loaded bushes, I was out working in the yard and took some weeds to the compost pile. I noticed that there were quite a few ripe black cap raspberries growing on the edge of the wetlands. If only I could get to them over the compost pile.
So over the pile I go, pick a nice bowl and fall on the way back. Good news – I didn’t drop the berries. 🙂
The tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and peas are growing beautifully. We’re eating as much lettuce as humanly possible and still have enough to share.
This week we get ready for our camping trip at Lake Winnepesaukee next week with the grandkids and our good camping friends from up north. All the swimming gear and clean linens are packed in the trailer, and I’ve started the grocery shopping. When we camp for our second week in August, we’ll hope the wild blackberries are in season because the bushes drip with large, juicy, blackberries and everyone loves them.
Camping means comfortable clothes including plenty of T-shirts. So, I did sit down for a while at the embroidery machine to dress up a few plain shirts.
I live outside in the summer whether it is gardening or camping. Inside can await my arrival in November. 🙂
