...because I now have a lovely sunflower smiling at me as I go about my duties...and another one about ready to join the show. I was wondering what would become of the giant sunflower plants beneath my little oak tree...but no worries. They are less than three feet tall...and already putting on their show. I love it!
I may just take you for a 'close up and personal' encounter with the sunflowers in the near future. I'm planning a visit to sunflower country...any idea where that might be?
I while I'm visiting 'sunflower country'...Heidi has volunteered to come pick my raspberries. Here's what she had in mind...she thought she would just come and 'pick & eat' a few times. She has no idea how many raspberries I harvest from my 16-foot row. Bring your buckets...you will be here awhile, my dear!
The raspberry season is just starting. I've been running out each morning to pick some for breakfast...fresh berries, sliced banana, peach yogurt sprinkled with Harvest Crunch granola...add a cup of coffee and eat on the back patio.
How well I remember all those summers spent in the raspberry patch when I was a kid. At three cents a pound, it took a while to pick enough to earn my yearly income. We have massive raspberries on our little row...
I would have really liked picking berries this size! I'm planning to do some picking today. It looks like it should be a warm one...and raspberry ripple pie might just hit the spot.
