Early bounty in Berryland

Raspberry patches seem to be everywhere in Whatcom County this week*, and Sunday on the interurban trail was no exception. But it's June, and their season runs from July to October, so let's hear it for another peak harvest.

*Little known fact: 80 per cent of US frozen raspberries come from Lynden, Washington in northern Whatcom County, according to the Washington Red Raspberry Commission. (Thirty or more years in and out of Bellingham and I had no idea.)

Another thing, it's been raining fairly steady since these shots were taken.
