Picking Raspberries

Here at my farm, it's time to harvest those small, fragrant, and refreshingly sweet raspberries - one of the most popular berries in the United States.

I grow red, black and golden raspberries, and the right time for picking is early summer when the fruits are vivid in color, and ready to fall off their stems. Although they are best eaten raw, raspberries are used in a variety of ways - as ingredients in jams and jellies, pies and tarts, or juices and herbal teas.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
