So, i marked my calender and showed up one Thursday morning to pick my share of raspberries for some jam. Irene took me out to her "patch" and Lou pointed me in the direction of the sweet and small raspberries that make fragrant jam. In fact, Lou doesn't even like his raspberries that much, since they have the aroma of "perfume".
Well, that works for me. I'll take perfumey raspberries any day. In fact, I wonder if lavender and raspberries would work. Hmpfh. Well, I picked enough to almost make a batch of jam so Irene had to finish off my pints.
It was so much cheaper to pick my own raspberries! Two pints for $5.00. And not only that, but i got to visit their lovely farm. See their many farm animals. ( See wild, native owl at left). And peek inside the B & B.
