It’s dah Berries!

As my grandmother used to say, “Make yourself useful as well as ornamental, dear.”

That saying totally applies to the berry plants I mentioned on the River this morning, Check out Raspberry Shortcake and the darling Babycakes…….both from Bushel & Berry Company. I simply remove the plant from the plastic pot, and slip it into a slightly larger container, full sun, and we eat berries from June until October.

I found the Raspberry Shortcakes at Costco a couple years ago, and snagged the Baby Cakes Blackberry at Far West Garden Center last month. Get em while you can!
