Our Backyard Raspberry Bushes (2019)

Fruit of the Bush

Much to our surprise and delight, our backyard has a number of raspberry bushes (Rubus idaeus). They are in various stages of being ready to pick. This is wonderful, since this year we do not have to make our annual trek to a farm nearby, a family ritual, to pick raspberries. We can do it in our backyard. Let’s call it “Greenbaum Farms,” a tiny urban farm, home to bees, butterflies, birds, hares, yellow irises and raspberries. Perhaps even some fresh milkweed.
