First Pickings

Just before dinner while we were waiting for the grill to pre-heat, I went out to check on the vegetable garden and pull a few weeds.  This is what I found... 

 Two days ago I wondered if they would ever ripen.

Tonight in a few minutes I had picked enough for three full bowls (dessert all around) and I didn't even get halfway down the outside edge of the patch. 

Bet you can guess what I'll be doing bright and early tomorrow morning.

Fresh picked Canby raspberries 
a little milk (I used Skim)
bowl and spoon 

But you really don't need the milk;
. or the bowl and spoon.
