The LENNDEVOURS family garden isn’t doing as well as I would have liked. Unfortunately (for gardening anyway) our back yard is mostly shaded, and I am not sure that our tomatoes are getting enough sun. They are growing fine, but they don’t have any buds/flowers yet.

On the other hand, our cukes are doing okay so there may be some pickles in the future.

What might be the most interesting part of the garden is something I didn’t even plant. We have a ton of wild raspberry bushes along our fence line.

So Nena picked one over the weekend and volunteered me to taste it.

I’m not sure if wild raspberries are just super tart or if they just aren’t ripe yet…but yowza…it was really tart. Does anyone know anything about these little gems?

Come to think of it, we have a lot of birds and if they were ripe and sweet, I’m sure the birds would pick them clean. I’d just like to have a few ripe ones later in the summer to toss onto salads or on my cereal in the morning.
