We planted a pair of raspberry vines two summers ago. We’ve anticipated the day when we could stroll by and pluck them straight from the vine. That day is…today!
I’m tempted to pull up a chair and a bowl to the edge of the planting box, but I’m showing a little restraint (mostly because I’m wearing a new white shirt).
As I see it, berries are the perfect fruit: no cutting or peeling required. You simply pull them from the vine and pop them in your mouth. Brilliantly red and lusciously sweet, it’s even fun to say: raspberry, razz-berry, rasp-bury.
What do you think? Is there any other fruit so sweet?
