Yellow raspberries, for instance. We planted three bare roots last fall. Now we get one berry, per person, a day. Since the kids haven't discovered how delicious they are, George and I have been enjoying their share. But today, because George left for work and the kids were both asleep, I enjoyed everybody's share. Four berries, all for me.
I do believe the berries tasted even better eaten from my Bridgeman berry bowl, another scarce object. Melissa Bridgeman only makes a few berry bowls at a time, and they are only available a few times a year. Lucky for you, she just posted ten berry bowls in her Etsy shop and is giving one away on this here blog.
So leave a comment for a chance to win your very own Bridgeman berry bowl. Tell me what color you would choose - white, robin's egg blue, yellow, grass green or cobalt - and what you would put in your berry bowl. My mom stores garlic in her yellow berry bowl, and last night I filled my white berry bowl with over a cup of shelled peas fresh from our garden. I anticipate using my berry bowl every single day this summer.
Hurry over to Melissa's Etsy shop and get a berry bowl before they're all gone. Like our yellow raspberries, they won't be there for long.
