Second raspberry of the Summer


The first one somehow found its way into my mouth before I thought about taking a photo.

Second raspberry

The raspberries and blackberries here at Ladybird Lane are just fantastic this year. That first one this morning was so sweet even after a swig of sweet, creamy coffee. Wow! I love Summer!

P.S. I’m so glad the rabbits don’t care for raspberries. They are raising cane with the roses, peas and broccoli even though I have a pretty good chicken wire fence around the garden. One thing I can’t fence out are the Japanese beetles. They are just starting to show up and are a real terror for for berry growers.

A resident of the “30 square miles surrounded by reality,” I spend most of my time teaching economics and statistics to undergraduate students. I enjoy, naturally, economics and business, but also science (I was once an astronomical observatory assistant), politics, photography, food, travel and sports. Madison has grown quite a bit since 1978 when Governor Lee Dreyfus made that remark. According to Wikipedia, Madison is 67.3 square miles of land and 16 square miles of water.
