Berry Breakfast

The berry patch has been very good to us this year. It got off to a slow start due to the cool weather but once it got going in the middle of December it was pick pick eat eat...freeze freeze freeze. We are still picking at least a punnet of mixed berries every day and the autumn raspberries are starting to flower. Below is a selection of berries that we had for breakfast a couple of weeks ago. It was the first time that we had been able to pick some of each variety. Some varieties were just finishing, some just starting and some in full swing.

There are raspberries, yellow raspberries, silvan berries, tay berries, young berries, boysenberries, logan berries and strawberries.
All absolutely yum!

Thanks to all our friends that came to give us a break from picking during the height of the season. Hope you enjoyed your pickings.
