Itís Raspberry Season Ö Again

A few years back I added raspberries to my home garden. I chose the red heritage variety for a few reasons, mainly because they are easy to grow and have thorns which helps keep the rabbits away from them. A side benefit of them, as with other raspberry varieties, is they spread easily and rapidly. If I donít cut them back to keep them in the space that I have designated for them, they could take over my property in only a few seasons.

Another great benefit of the red heritage variety is that I am lucky enough to get two harvests from them every year. I am in zone 7a and the red heritage raspberries will produce in late May to early June and again in late August to early September. And I donít mean small harvests, I mean literally thousands of raspberries during each harvest.

It`s Raspberry Season Again

Itís now entering late August here in Zone 7a and we are noticing the first raspberries of our second season. They start coming in slowly, then by mid September we have so many that it is hard to keep up. We manage though.

It`s Raspberry Season Again

This year I have some new raspberry jam and jelly recipes that I want to give a try so I can enjoy our raspberries through the long cold winter months. I also purchased an add on item for my dehydrator that allows me to spread out my raspberry mixture onto it which makes fruit roll ups. It doesnít have a fancy name it is simply the Food Dehydrator Fruit Roll Sheets. They are available at most stores as well as on Amazon.

Along with being easy to grow, I highly recommend that you add raspberries to your garden for the nutritional punch a handful of them give you. One cup of raspberries gives you 53% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C and 32% of fiber.

Happy gardening!
