I've almost fallen a few times. This would be particularly bad because there is a patch of raspberries under the branches that I harvest most of the berries from. I should probably stop trying to grab things out of reach but I won't learn that until I end up falling. It's not that I'm overly confident in my abilities, just very very foolish.
You know the berries are ready when pretty much fall of the branch just by touching them. That being said even when they're not completely ripe they're still quite good. The tree in the garden has been fruiting for about a month and may have another month to go! I grabbed a few dozen today and gave them a good wash. Make sure not to soak the berries long because they'll loose their taste relatively quickly.

This post may seem a little disjointed. That's because I was only going to post the picture with the title. Then I figured the title is so great that it would get people's hopes up. If they clicked on it just to see a picture it may be a little disappointing. I also just made brownies from a mix and added Reese Cups and butterscotch chips. I'm EXTREMELY excited!
I'm really not sure how to end this post. My landlords are back with their three screaming children and I'm a little annoyed. I don't mean to alienate anyone with kids, but there is at least one child screaming/crying every minute of the day. It starts to grate on you. I think it's about time to find a new place. Unfortunately with only one of us employed that isn't in the cards.
I have all my plants outside and I'm afraid they'll end up being abused. Last time they were hit with a basketball. It took my Adenium a month to start growing again. That is something you just don't forget. I'm afraid to go outside and move stuff and risk an awkward social interaction. I think I'll sneak out in a few hours under the cover of darkness and move stuff then.
Hopefully they don't think I'm trying to break-in and end up coming outside. Then *BAM* awkward social encounter. Speaking of awkward, I just saw an ad for a 24 hour reality show channel. That kind of makes me sick. Of course I'll have to give it a chance so I don't make a hasty, uneducated decision.
Now I'm just warm and slightly annoyed. I think I may have gotten a little off topic. I think I'll add some text after the stuff that's plant related to warn my readers of what is to follow. This long, odd little ramble that has a tone of slight annoyance.
Of course it isn't as long as the book "The Reality Dysfunction". I'm a total sci-fi fan. This book has over 900 pages in relatively small print (smaller than standard at least). I'm around page 460. I think I'm going to have to renew the loan.
I'm going to end this post now. I just want my brownies. I'll call them special brownies. You can take from that what you will but they only have the added Reese Cups and butterscotch chips. They have to cook longer and generally don't turn out entirely solid but if you put them in the fridge they're just AMAZING!
