Raspberry picking

Raspberry season has started a couple of weeks early this year. I noticed a few berries in the front yard were ripening this morning and it turns out that Roy's Raspberries opened for picking today.

Between us, Jess and I managed to pick three pails of berries in about an hour. The berries were big, juicy and all on the tops and outsides of the bushes. I think we paid $47 for about 10 litres.

I've dropped a bunch in the freezer (4 litres) for jamming later on and we froze the rest of eating or baking. Oh, and I kept some out for ice cream tonight.
