Raspberry and Blueberry bushes

This year we have spent much of our time focusing on growing more of our own food.  We planted our regular garden but this year we also planted 3 raspberry bushes and 3 blueberry bushes.  With fruit from my own backyard, the possibilities are endless; jams, jellies, pies and just fresh fruit in general.  The blueberry bushes have already started producing fruit but we probably won't get any raspberries until next year. 

While I was in the middle of planting the bushes, the children were at my side picking the ripe blueberries off of the bushes before I could even get them into the ground.  They are very excited and can't wait to be able to walk out the backdoor and pick berries any time they want.  This has been a year of learning for all of us; mommy and daddy are learning to grow more food while the children are learning that food doesn't magically appear in our home.  :o)
