Raspberries Galore

As we head towards Autumn Vegmead is still producing soft fruit on a daily basis. After 4 weeks of blackcurrants we’ve had three weeks of raspberries and they are delicious. Vegmead’s fruit harvest this year has included strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, rhubarb and gooseberries.   It’s wonderful to visit the site on my way home from work and pick a few raspberries plus a few salad leaves for dinner. The raspberries have been popular with children too. A week or so ago I met a woman and her grandson picking the fruit at Vegmead. She told me that she often visits the site and recently her grandson has been going straight to the raspberries and picking as much of the fruit as he could reach. It was great to see the site serving its community purpose and bringing enjoyment to local people. 13895029_1051557348268248_7731890940141670580_n
