I hadn’t been up to the allotment since last week, I’d been busy playing housewife (aka trying to find my phone) and well I needed time for my hand to heal to. But my dad was down here very briefly yesterday, so we popped up for a quick look up at the plot and my dad noticed that some of my raspberries that I thought weren’t ripening were actually yellow raspberries and I hadn’t even known yellow raspberries existed. I don’t think they’re in the shops because apparently they don’t last long after you’ve picked, although that may be because they’re all eaten because they are absolutely delicious! I also have some normal raspberries and they tasted very bland in comparison.
So after I dropped the kids off at school today, I popped back down there to do some work (raking away some weeds that had cropped up on the turned over soil plus turning over yet more soil elsewhere – luckily my hand seems to be not disintegrating into a disgusting mess this time) and to pick some raspberries. Not all of the raspberries are ripe yet and I’m not sure with it being so late in the year if they will but we’ll see and we’ll appreciate the ones that have ripened.
