The First Raspberries of Summer

Happy Solstice! I love this time of year. It’s hard to believe that it’s been a full 6 months since the winter solstice and that the days are going to start getting shorter. That means fall is coming, but summer hasn’t even really started for us in the PNW!

It was so fitting that I found the first ripe raspberries of the summer last night.

It can officially be summer now.

The raspberry in the photo above was on the new everbearing raspberry canes that I just recently transplanted into the garden.

I also went over to the raspberry patches at Catlin and found several ripe golden raspberries. I picked a handful and ate some straight off the cane.

This, to me, is pure joy!


And the blueberries aren’t far behind…
