A Good Harvest, Indeed

40 Comments

While the season may be over for local raspberries, those bare bushes aren’t an entirely depressing sight to see. We pulled a truly impressive harvest this year, far better than ever before. Seeing this wealth of ruby red berries sitting placidly in the freezer and fridge, I’m only sad that not everyone out there has such luck. Wanting to share the wealth, I thought I might make you a deal: If you can guess how many quarts of raspberries my dad and I picked this year, I’ll send you some raspberry-imbued goodies through the mail. Keep in mind that one quart = four cups, and please make only one guess. Whoever hits the nail on the head first wins!

  11. 10.

    They’re wonderful, aren’t they? As delicious as they are in complex dishes, my favorite is still adding them to a simple white cake once the batter’s in the pan. YUM.

  20. Well since my family has picked about 3 quarts from our rather small blackberry crop and you all go out so frequently and you dad is fairly aggressive about it, I’m going to say 27 quarts.

  24. 4 quarts to a gallon, and rembering the good ol days when I had a rasberry patch 8 gallons. 8X4=32 but since you said quarts not gallons add 2 for 34 quarts of yummy goodness.
