Raise your hand if you love raspberries!
Bunches of raspberries are finally turning ripe and this is creating a lot of excitement here on Critter Farm:
After picking 2.9 pounds from my upper raspberry bushes this morning, I decided it was an excellent time to conduct a quick, completely unscientific, poll:
..on who around here loves raspberries - and who doesn't.
Can you guess the results?
Roxy, my farm pup?:
Without question. She loves them:
And she thanked me afterwards:
Absolutely, the hungry little dinosaurs. They've grown up on these...and I've seen recent evidence that they've already been helping themselves to the low hanging fruit. (I'm totally on to you, girls!):
The donkeys, Beau and Chester?:
Mmm hmm. Yeah:
...and funny faces:
As I was walking down to ask the goats their opinion on raspberries, look who I ran into...Honey.
Of course, her opinion matters:
She loved them:
And what about the goat boys, Pete and Reggie?:
There is very little these boys won't eat:
Pete even licked up the juice:
And I truly did not know until this afternoon...:
...just how long Pete's tongue was:
She did her very best impression of a llama ignoring me. She thought they were stinky:
Our cat, George?:
Complete and total disinterest. Didn't smell like tuna, you know:
My man, Jim?
Oh, you better believe he loves them ...sprinkled over vanilla bean ice cream:
He insists this is the only way to eat raspberries.
So, that about sums it up. Raspberries are very big around here, though there are a few hold-outs who don't appreciate them as much as they should.
I think this was quite an informative post, don't you?
