First batch 2018

Sweet joy-black raspberries growing wild beside our garage.

Cleaned and ready for a quick freeze until I have enough to make some raspberry jam or ice cream OR BOTH!

I spread them out on a baking sheet after they’ve been washed, dried with a paper towel and then spread them out. Pop them in the freezer!

They’re really nice this year and sooooo sweet!

We got a 12 ounce Cool Whip bowl full.

We should have another bowl full by the weekend and then another patch on the farm should start ripening!  I’m so excited that I have something to finally store for the winter of 2018.

    We have blackberries, and we have raspberries, but no black raspberries. I could actually do without the raspberries. Blackberries do very well here for some reason. I am told that the black raspberries might do as well as blackberries, but I have not tried them yet. So many varieties gets confusing. I got salmonberries two winters ago, but may get rid of them if they are likely to become invasive and spread into the adjacent forest.
