day 1 - red ripe raspberries
My son works for one of the larger raspberry farms in our county... during harvest he spends all of the daylight hours and many of the nighttime hours at the fields. But most of us raspberry lovers think it's worth the efforts of these farmers.
Here at Red Gate farm we're surrounded by raspberry fields and when the loaded trucks drive by they are trailed by the smell of red, ripe raspberries. Tonight I was extra lucky, while driving home I was behind a raspberry truck... loaded with these little nuggets of gold... the smell was divine, much better than most farm vehicles I get behind in the summer.
Day one down, nine more to go.
