In Michigan raspberries have a long season lasting from July through September. They are a favorite among the shorter pickers in my family because they can easily reach them and shove a few in their mouths before I notice. Raspberries come in black, red and yellow. This year, I am trying to grow a bush with red berries in a pot on my deck. I only hope I can get to them before the birds do.
