Yes, the berries. That is what it is all about right now at the secret farm. First, it was the strawberries by the bucket all June long (and still a few stragglers now) And right on their heels (or whatever berries have) the raspberries! They are crazy this year! Which makes me wonder, do berries like drought? I did not water the raspberries AT ALL, and they are just nutso! BTW, the pic shows about a 1/4 of the raspberries picked yesterday!

The strawberries were pretty gangbusters too, with very little attention from me. In fact, watering them just seems to encourage slug damage, so I am refraining.

I just don't know how they make themselves so juicy and delicious without rain!? I know raspberries have very deep roots - ever try to dig some up? But strawberries have very shallow roots. Pretty amazing.

What are all your berries up to? What are your favs?

That's quite a harvest! My blueberries are coming along nicely this year, and I'm looking forward to making some homemade blueberry pie! It's always better to grow your own, don't you think? :D

Congrats on your berries! You're doing a pretty good job. Some berries are really drought tolerant. And strawberries don't want to sit in soggy soil.

But anyways, I see you haven't posted in a while. Hope you'd tell us more about your secret garden, err, farm. =)
