Now in our third year, we are LOADED with berries! Our Black Raspberries came first mid-June, yielding about 8 or 10 pounds within a few week time frame, with the Red and Golden bearing ripened fruits near the beginning of July, and the Blackberries peaking aroun the same time. The Red and Golden Raspberries have never been as plentiful as the others, but having 3.5 people in our household, we were quite fine with the "half-person" consuming most of them, and allowing the other three people to have a handful every other day.
This summer has been a bit weird in the weather department, with a mostly arid July and a very wet start to August, leaving our Raspberry plants quite confused. The Golden and Red Raspberries are almost finished with their second flowering of the season! As a novice to the Berry farmer business, I didn't know they would produce fruit twice in one year. So, more recipe hunts! :-)
I made this delicious and simple Raspberry Coffee Cake with a few modifications, and I do believe the recipe will be finding a home within my cookbook. YUM
