Our long-term plan of becoming successful gardeners continues apace. My pride and joy on the land are these black raspberry bushes. Last year, we had about 5 berries due to some incorrect pruning and water shortages. This year we probably had more than 100 from the south bush. The north bush is producing a single berry this year, but is growing great. I'm hoping for bushels next year.
Rain has fallen from the sky this year. We took a trip to Kickapoo recently to splash around in the river. The kids didn't get much further from shore than shown below. There is way more water flowing than last year
Speaking of squishing, both girls are quite successful lightning bug catchers. Janny is quite rough on them (and all bugs in general).
