Today I picked the first raspberries! Not enough for jam yet, but enough for a treat: I also invested $8.99 in a 50' soaker hose from Menards yesterday to water the huge raspberry row. We haven't had measureable rain for a couple of weeks and I realized I better get watering if I want any berries this year. I ran the soaker for 45 minutes this morning and will probably do that every other day or so during bearing season. Beats wasting a day running out there every 30 min (and that's when I remember) to move a regular hose down the row. By the way, I have no idea what variety these are. They came with the house when I moved here. Peanut likes to pick raspberries too. Holy man, look at that tongue. Yum!
