Thank you, summer.

Fresh, fresh, fresh.
It was a perfect summer evening tonight. Not because the sun was still out and the wind was low - in fact, it rained a little. No, it was perfect because we were lucky enough to have enjoyed a fresh raspberry pie with berries picked minutes before baking it. I'd never attempt to make a raspberry pie if I had to buy them in the store. It would cost a fortune. But, because our raspberry bushes are prosperous - and continue to be each year - we are thankful for the pie we ate tonight...and it's not even Thanksgiving. So, a big thank you to summer.

  1. What a great idea! We were trying to figure out what to plant in our garden (starting next year, since we just moved in). I heard raspberries can be invasive, though. Do you have tips on keeping them in check?
