It’s raspberry season here in Connecticut. Many folks seem to be surprised that it comes so late in the summer, but typically picking starts in mid August and runs into September. On Sunday, Eunice and I drove out to Bishop’s Orchards in Guilford. Hours vary so be sure to call ahead. (203) 458-PICK.
It was hot out there, even at 10 am. My advice? Go raspberry picking on an overcast day.
Every year “sin bin” sign is out. I never realized the proceeds go to the Guilford Land Trust.
But I don’ t snack in the fields. I’m there to fill that white bucket up as fast as I can and head for some shade!
Check back after Labor Day, next week the blog will feature a raspberry lemonade recipe from leFarm in Westport.
