Berry time!

Today, my daughter and I picked some wild raspberries. They were very small but so tasty and there were definitely not enough of them!

Our main raspberry crop is an autumn raspberry which is nearly always prolific, but personally I find the summer raspberries (even the cultivated ones) have more flavour. Last year, we had the first of our tayberries and the only way I can describe them is an explosion of taste in your mouth! This year they are doing well, better than the loganberries which are not as sweet. As the weather is damp and humid the berries we have growing up on supports are doing better than those trailing on the ground.
