we went out to a berry farm on saturday for raspberries to make ourselves a store of jam. raspberries are my absolute favorite berry, and I am always that crazy girl at the market paying $6 for a pint the first saturday they show up. we had to wait for the raspberries, as they are picked after the dew has evaporated, so we perused the garden centre attached, and came home with a flat [10 pints] of raspberries, a flat of strawberries [8 pints] and also a box of on-sale perennials. we were quickly down two boxes of raspberries, and had very stained hands as they were the nicest we've ever eaten. the jam is delicious, it was a very productive day. on to pickles!
