Saturday’s Surprise: Rasberries!

July 4, 2009 at 7:47 pm 5 comments

I wasn’t going to post today but I had a little surprise in the garden and I couldn’t wait to share it with you!



They are green still but I’m so thrilled because these were transplanted from my mothers raspberry patch this (yes I said THIS) spring!  Can you believe they are producing?

PeeWee spotted one and…swoop

We did several different transplants and the ones that were planted with long wooden stems (that looked spent) produced leaves first and now raspberries in their very first season at our place! Yipee!

I did remember in my “mom brain” archives learning that rasberries fruit on old wood.  Now I have the proof or a miracle but either way…thanks Mom!

Oops, she got one!catch

    Great captures. I bet you can’t wait for them to ripen.

      If yours don’t product this year you may want to consider moving them. These very same rasberries had stopped producing at my mom’s I believe because the trees had grown tall and shaded them. They no longer got the hot daytime sun they were used to. Don’t water them too much (infrequent deep waterings) and see what happens this year. Hope they work! 🙂

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
