    I absolutely love Frozen grapes they are my favorite! 🙂

  2. Jim says:

    Celery sticks with peanut butter

  3. Liz says:

    I have a 7ft by 7ft red raspberry thicket from originally 6 canes I bought on sale a few years ago. I do not know the kind because it was what the online nursery had the most of (they choose and shipped their surplus.) It spread like an invasive. It gives me more than enough to eat a 1/2 cup of fresh berries daily July- September. They taste better than Latham. And the leaves I dry and use for tea.

    • Lynne says:

      Where do you live that raspberries
      do so well?

      • Mrs. Golden says:

        they typically do well in the NW; if you’re in a dryer climate, they will just need more water and nutrient-rich soil. If you live in a highly humid/rainy location, put them in beds (line the bed really well, they spread from the roots!) and add some sand to the soil for good drainage.

    • Billie says:

      That sounds delicious & can’t more organic than your own backyard.

    • Mrs Golden says:

      they spread from the roots and are as invasive as blackberries or ivy… just be careful with those suckers! 6 canes is a LOT after just 2 years of maturing.
