Fruit

Now that summer time is coming to an end, my craving watermelon and pineapples are gone. No longer do I wish to snack on juicy red watermelon or sweet, fresh pineapples. My taste for fruit changes with the seasons and now that the leaves are starting to change color I am craving these succulent, seedy, sweet little balls of goodness...


Mmmmm.... Raspberries! We are fortunate enough to live within 5 mins of the most amazing apple orchard in all of Northern Illinois!! Not only does our apple orchard have acres upon acres of apples, a beautiful barn housing the most delicious dips, sauces and fudge you ever did taste, but they also have fields of raspberry bushes ready for picking!

 

There is nothing more fun that heading out to the field with my family and picking a pint of fresh raspberries and snacking on the ones that don't quit make it to the container. And the fact the the sun was shining made our adventure even better!

How fun, I don't think we have any here. Dang, I might have to try planting my own.
