a return to raspberries

we put the kids to work in the fields yesterday harvesting delicious, fresh, and local northwest raspberries.

eighteen pounds later, and with many thanks to bryan and uncle schmatt, we have yet another year's worth of homemade raspberry jam.

ps - that was probably the only raspberry that afton picked, being not such a big fan of "dirt" and "work" and such. caleb, for his part, contributed only by eating another eighteen pounds of raspberries (in addition to a few yummy leaves he managed to get his hands on). whilst summer, ever the eldest, busily and excitedly went about plucking as many plump berries as she could, pausing her efforts occasionally to share her bounty with the littles.
