Okay, so it's not exactly an impressive harvest. But given that two weeks ago we didn't even know this bush existed, I'm pretty happy with it. I ate half of the berries and saved the other half for Thomas. Those were probably some of the best raspberries I have ever had. Super juicy, nice and sweet and tons of flavor. It seriously tasted like I had just poured some raspberry concentrate (does that exist?) into my mouth.
Unfortunately it has been ridiculously hot here for the last week and it looks like a lot of the berries that probably would have been ready by now are all dried up. I'm hoping that the bush will bounce back once the temperatures drop a little.
Oh, and look at what else I found that day!
A firefly! I was in the kitchen when all of a sudden I saw this huge black thing fluttering next to me. I immediately went into panic mode until I saw it glowing and realized what this bug was. Being the brave-attempting-to-conquer-my-phobias-one-baby-step-at-a-time kind of person that I am, I quickly grabbed a snapware and captured the creature instead of smashing it into oblivion like I usually do when I find bugs.
I showed off my catch to the hubs before releasing the firefly back into the wild. So I'm going to go ahead and give myself a big ole pat on the back for that one! What are you proud of that you've done lately?
