We are fortunate in our wonderful crop of raspberries that grow in our backyard. The bottom photo shows a bowl of these delightful berries that my husband picked. Truth is, these berries rarely make it into our kitchen, as we love to eat them in our backyard, right off the branch. No need for recipes. We get crop #1 in early July on old canes and #2 in late August on the new, green canes. One trick for maintaining these berry bushes is be sure to prune the old canes.

Hi, which delight, I got water in the mouth. Thanks for sharing.
Those look delicious!! Happy R.T. 😀
I so love fruit! I’d be eating these raspberies in the garden too!
Oh, I’m envious! Our raspberries produce only one crop a year. But you are so-o-o right that they rarely make it to the kitchen. Happy Ruby Tuesday!
I too wanna have some.
There are raspberry in the woods near by us, but they are all gone weeks ago.
Yours sure looked tempting, gave me water in my mouth.
You ARE lucky indeed. How wonderful to be able to eat them immediately. 😉
Mmmm, luscious! Your photos are making me hungry.
In your backyard??? I am envious! If I had access to the beautiful berries, I’d eat on cereal, make raspberry vinegar, enhance a salad…no limit to the uses of this divine berry!
Fortunate is right! Those cost about $4 (USD) a pint where I live. And in addition to being one of my more favorite berries, they make a spectacular RT display!
They look good enough to eat right now! May I have one please?
I am here with Ruby Tuesday and Naked On a Horse.
I’ll have mine sprinkled on a bowl of French Vanilla ice cream, please. 😉
I love to eat that, can you give me some? here’s mine sweetnorms and travelnorms..
Yep, those look good enough to eat!
Great shot. Have a great Ruby Tuesday.
Local ones here are REALLY expensive. Nice treat to have your own…
Excellent choice for Ruby Tuesday!
Re your comment at Jerusalem Hills Daily Photo – “Louis” agrees with you. When he lived in France, he found a lot of the same sentiment by the French. We often forget about 1870 when we recall 1914 and 1940.
Wow, they do look delicious!!
They reminded me of my childhood. I used to pick them right off the bush too.
They look very appetizing. The shots are good too.
Those look great! One of my favorite memories as a child was picking raspberries with my cousins in the Laurentians.
I love rasberries, but sadly you practically need to take out a second mortgage to buy them here.
I could just pick them off my screen and eat them – I love rasberries..
happy ruby tuesday
“Louis” had to stop by and look at these luscious raspberries one more time!
(He also thanks you for stopping and commenting at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.
Lovely fresh grown raspberries from your very own backyard!
They definitely can’t get fresher than that 🙂
Happy Ruby Tuesday!!
Leora: I love all fresh berries but must admit the blackberry is my fav.
Each a perfect little delicious ruby!
Thanks for your comment on my red church doors and bus door.

my DIL is addicted to chocolate covered raspberries
Beautiful and delectable. How lovely to be able to pick your own berries like that. Yummmmmm.
I so love raspberries!!!
Yummy. Love raspberries.
What beautiful berries…I call them nature’s gems. Your pictures are lovely.
I’m not usually a raspberry fan but straight off the vine it’s amazingly wonderful and sweet. How lucky you have them in your backyard. 🙂
Yum, those raspberries look wonderful. You are lucky to have some growing in your yard.
Happy Belated Ruby Tuesday ~

Patti, I added your name into the comment. And here I thought you were being the mysterious “P”. 😮
