Today (June 13) was the first day I found ripe wild raspberries in the woods located on the union of New York/Vermont/Massachusetts, near Bennington, VT, or Williamstown, MA. Actually, my partner, found them and offered them to me. Such a sweet gesture. I love them and he knows it.
Below are wild raspberry blooms taken on May 31. Not the same plant, however. There are still wild raspberry blooms throughout the woods.
And below is a shot I took a few days ago of a not-ready wild raspberry.
Here is my recipe for enjoying your local wild raspberries:
Go for a walk in the woods, watching for ripe (dark red) wild raspberries. You will find them in disturbed dirt (doesn't take much) usually close to the ground. When discovering one, pop it in your mouth. Salivate.
Alternative: Collect six to ten in your hand and then toss them all in your mouth at once. Salivate.
