Our ever-bearing raspberries are well into their second season and the fruit is bountiful! We have been featuring raspberries for breakfast at our Lanesboro, MN inn for the last 3 weeks.
Today we served raspberries and bananas topped with dulce-de-leche. The crop has been so good I have been freezing the extra raspberries for use later in the season. Carol uses them in our entrees for Raspberry Cornbread, Yummy Raspberry French Toast, and fruit topping for pancakes.
Carol uses the fresh raspberries in baking too! Two of my favorites are Raspberry Chocolate Chip Muffins and Sour Cream Scones with Raspberries.
Last year the frost got the last of our raspberry crop. This year with an earlier season, we’ll get more for the freezer and the guests.
The fall colors are just starting to appear in Southeast Minnesota. The cooler days offer great conditions for biking the Root River State Trail.
The mums and the asters in my garden are just waiting to pop out their colorful blossoms. I’ve got some hardy perennial mums that will soon become a mound of color.
