Don't know if so under general, but would guess fruit.
Picked over 20 gallons so far. Been a bumper crop this year. Eating pies :) , cobblers :), cakes, muffins & other experiments. :)


Froze 4 gallon so far. Neighbors & friends also picking.
Planted them all the way around the garden to maybe help keep the moose out. No moose so far so maybe it worked.

Those are nice looking berries, so big compared to mine. The goodies made from them look very good too! :D Have you ever tried drying them? They're good mixed in granola...if it's something you eat.

Wow - truly gorgeous berries! You must be using horsey compost on those brambles. . . . :wink:

I had the red raspberries for a while but the netting and raspberry bushes were a pain in the butt. Without the netting, the birds got all the berries. :( I wonder what the bears will do it they find them. :roll:

No horsey compost this year but will from here on since I have some.
It was a mild winter last year (no -20 or worse with wind to freeze dry the bushes) so all of the bushes produced this year.

No bears yet, but in Alaska we are allowed to protect our property from all critters. I still know how to skin bears if they do show up. :)
