Oh my, look what I found!

I can’t believe it. James and I have been going back and forth about this crazy plant in the northeast flower bed. We have pulled it out one year, or so we thought, and nearly killed it the second year before we finally decided to just let it go to see what it was. This year when it came again in the exact same place, we decided to just let it grow until we could figure out what it is. Well last week it bloomed. James looked at it and said, hey you are growing cockle burrs. I just ignored him and the plant. Today, I went out the east door to hang clothes on the line. When I came in I noticed that the flowers had turned into….check it out below.

Raspberry plant.

So, I bought three plants when we lived in Linton, a raspberry, a blueberry and a blackberry. I had them in pots in the house and they were doing fine. Then they started to die back. Victoria said to get them in the ground, but I must have planted this one and forgotten about it. What a ditz. How could I forget? I guess I was so upset about it dying. We bought another one this year, and it died too. I did stick it in the ground, but James mowed it off. I wonder if it will grow next year. We will have to see. At least I know where that one is. At least I wasn’t so out to lunch when we planted the pear trees, and they have life to them, check it out below.

    At least you know what you are growing, and it isn’t milk.

    This is so funny. Raspberries are a bit tenacious as you killing process shows, but is it not great when they fruit?

    Oh that is a treasure! There is nothing better than raspberries eaten fresh off the vine.

      I agree that it is a treasure, I just wish I would have known all along. I guess too much on the mind. I did get to eat the first one, and cannot wait for the rest to ripen.
