Check out my post from yesterday to hear briefly about my half marathon. I will be putting out a detailed race report in the next couple of days.
Last year when I was starting my garden, I knew I wanted to grow some fruit. I planted strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. Unfortunately raspberries don't produce any fruit their first year, strawberries only put off a kind of pitiful crop in their first year (at least for me) and the blackberry plant died.
But raspberries come back STRONG in the second year. I planted one small plant and this year I have probably 20 or 30 shoots. The shoots I don't believe put out fruit this year, but the branches from the original plant are already giving me berries.
There are many many berries already formed from last years wimpy branches. I think I am going to be hit with a surplus when these puppies ripen. Have you ever frozen raspberries? Is there anything special I need to do - I was thinking to just throw them in a freezer bag and freeze.
What childhood toys have you played with recently?
