For most people who actually know how to garden this is probably not a big deal, but for the first time ever I picked raspberries from the backyard in my new house! It was totally awesome! I also discovered that my dog will eat them right off the bush. I have no idea if that is good for him or not. (eek?) however, I have quite a huge swath of raspberries. It's very exciting. Silly but exciting. Here is a photo of my first pickings... Since this photo I have picked about 3 pints off the bush.
