A testimony to Black raspberries

Ok so at the young age of 26 (I am being sarcastic because this is silly), I finally had my first black raspberry; from my backyard! We've been waiting for the raspberries to ripen and this is their third year so it's our first kind of sizeable haul.

Mike likes to eat berries like a bear (get on his tiptoes and eat them straight off the vine). It's a sight I'll have to capture sometime. I picked for about 30 minutes, carefully avoiding prickers and bird netting, and got about 35-45 berries- just enough for us to chomp up for dessert.

If you haven't had fresh black raspberries: Plant some. Pick some. Eat some!
