Heh heh - get it, branches out?!? I know, I'm astoundingly clever.
Sasha has discovered that strawberries aren't the only sweet things in the garden! Her passion for strawberries has now expanded to include raspberries, even the ones that are so un-ripe that they won't even release their stems! And she hasn't yet complained about the stickers, so I guess that the sweet, sweet taste of under-ripe berries is worth a few prickers.
I haven't yet been able to harvest enough berries to satiate her... maybe we need to plant another patch? Or maybe I just need to water the plants now that it's finally warm and dry (we're back to proper Utah summer weather!) so the berries will actually mature rather than shrivel up. Thank goodness we didn't plant our regular veggie garden this year - if I can't even keep raspberries watered, tomatoes and beans wouldn't have a prayer!
