They're almost ripe. I bought three kinds last year end of season for cheap and I'm thrilled!

I already had blackberries going. Blueberries next year.

Mmm...raspberries! They are my favourite berries.

We have a small raspberry patch out in the back yard, and we eat a few of them and let the wild birds enjoy the rest.

Thanks for the warning. The only birds we had trouble with here were Canada geese, especially the ones with offspring. They came up the yard the first year and stripped the blackberries, so we put a cheesy plastic mesh fence around them and that was enough for the geese, who are not too bright. I'll have to give the smart little birds some thought.
