Black Raspberries wait for no man....


Look at poor Mike's permanent purple paws!!



Wonder why I've not posted much art this week? The wild black raspberries on our farm are ready! Ya gotta pick em' and use them as soon as they are ready because they spoil quickly! So Mike has been picking every day, and we've been making jams and jellies until 2 in the morning after I get home from work at night! Probably only enough left for another batch or two this season, and at least a cobbler or two as well. Yummy! Plus we have the added comfort of knowing there are no pesticides or chemicals added!

mmmm...cobbler made from fresh berries...mmmm. And, I bet the black raspberry stain isn't all that permanent (sounds odd, but tell him to try washing his hands with shampoo).
