It was hot this week and I didn’t make it into the garden on Wednesday or Thursday.  I went out this morning and this was the haul:


Primo and Segundo show off some of the larger specimens:

Every year right after the solstice we get our bumper crop of raspberries.  This year was no different and since we were away nobody was here to pick the early ones.  So last night we took almost two pints of berries.  Segundo shows off the haul.

Raspberries been Berry, Berry good to me!

We even had enough to garnish a capirihna.


We had our second batch of squash blossoms, too, but nobody remembered the camera until they were gone.

We returned from our week in Colorado to discover our garden had been swallowed up by alien beings.  Or zucchini, maybe.  Had our first fried blossoms the night we got back and more are scheduled for tonight.
