|California raspberries in May|
I'm busy finishing up OSU's permaculture MOOC, so I'll leave you a pretty photo and we can all dream of local June raspberries rapidly ripening in the upcoming heat wave. I bought these California raspberries for Mother's Day as a treat to myself. Though I'm not a mother, I could have been but chose not to for the sake of the child, making me a good mother. Really, any excuse to treat myself is a good one. I do miss the productive raspberry canes I planted in the backyard of the Brooklyn rental, thanks to my friend Sarah, now herself a mother, who had generously thinned out some of her large patch. But there will be other raspberries. . . .
