Yesterday .. .
on the first day of summer I wore a long sleeved T shirt and it wasn't to keep the sun off of my arms.
I looked across at our neighbor, Ravi's berry fields and decided to have a closer inspection to check for quality control.
It won't be long now .. .
the berry machines will be making their way slowly down our country road.
Did you know that the Fraser Valley harvests of 12 million kilograms of raspberries every summer?
Did you know that our Pacific Coastal climate is ideal to growing raspberries and we grow 80% of the worlds raspberries right here?
Did you know that raspberries are full of Vitamins like. .
Manganese topping the list at nearly 69% followed by Vitamin C some B's and not to mention that they have 34 % of daily dietary fibre.
While I wrote this post .. .
I ate that handful of raspberries.
Next time you pick up a carton of quick frozen raspberries. . .check to see where they came from.
It just might have been from the field next door.
Have a wonderful and blessed summer my friends.
All for now . .
