    Whoo hoo!

  2. 3 days and no other comments. This is because this picture is one of peace and solitude requiring reflection and silence. But then again…I never could be quiet for long. Just ask Sister Mary Bang you on the Head.

    I'm curious, how productive are your raspberries/brambles? Do you do any pruning to increase yield, or do you simply reap from the bounty of the wild? We're surrounded by wild raspberries and brambles here, but I can never seem to time it so I get a good amount before the birds have at them. . . I guess they aren't as picky as I am.

  5. They're just wild – I don't prune them or anything. We gather many quarts a year in the summer through fall. The ice storm of 1998 destroyed about 150 acres of our forest much of which came back as brambles (raspberries, thumbleberries, blackberries, blueberries). There are also the tiny wild strawberries which we can pick a fair number of although not nearly as much or easily. There's enough for us, the birds and three bears who live around us. Keeps us all fattened up for the winter. :)
