Raspberries!

Crow Forest Farm is in a cooler microclimate than the rest of Blacksburg.  This means that we have certain fruits later than everybody else.  For example, I harvested a pound of  raspberries this morning.  The cute dog in the photo is Huxley, my friend Seneca’s 1-year old puppy. I put the raspberries into two piles:  The pile on the left is firm and fresh, and will be used in jam, the pile to the right were mushy already: I’ll be letting these continue to ferment in a bottle into a raspberry vinaigrette.

I’ll be at the We Are All Farmers permaculture institute at Union Grove, NC this weekend.  Hopefully I’ll have some cool new stuff to report after the weekend : )Huxley harvests raspberries
