Our backyard was full of fresh ripe fruit this August...it has been so hot! Lesson learned though...the perfect looking fruit just on the verge of being too ripe can be there one day and gone the next thanks to the family of raccoons that frequents our backyard. Alas, the few ripe tomatoes that I left too long on the vine also got snatched before I was able to take photographs1
The blackberries are not raccoon friendly though so we have an abundance of those. Blackberry jelly for sure this year!
