The raspberry patch

From the French film Amalié

Although production is slowing down, we're still picking raspberries every day from our small backyard raspberry patch. The berries start to ripen in July and and go on and on until October, give or take a few weeks on either end. It's hard to believe it, but we pick about a quart a day of these ruby jewels from just three little plants during their peak! We enjoy the raspberries straight up, and freeze heaps for breakfast berry smoothies or refreshing vodka infused bramble smash drinks. Raspberries are packed with fiber, and also contain polyphenol antioxidants which promote cardiovascular health, woo hoo!
