Our patch is full of ripe red berries! The bushes have been neglected and I didn't buy another net to protect the fruit from the hungry birds (after last year when the net we paid $40 for and placed meticulously over all the blueberries and raspberries, was ripped when a huge branch fell on the whole situation a few weeks later, just before the harvest.)
So, somehow, this year we have berries. It is a treacherous but satisfying experience to pick the ripe ones.
