100th Raspberry

In just a couple of weeks we (that's the royal we as I have had little to do with it) have harvested 100 raspberries from this little patch.

Greg has netted it to stop the birds taking them as they can become a weed. Still it is worth it to have them planted. The strawberries are bearing beautifully too but the hot weather is coming and they are slowing down.
I am not sure what to do with this bounty, we have been eating them fresh with some cream or ice cream and that is good enough for me. I'll have to think of something special for them. In the meantime fresh is best and there is nothing quite as sweet as a raspberry picked and eaten within a few minutes.
