Garden Berry Ice Cream

Our front yard faces due south so to optimize this precious solar ressource, we installed 21 solar panels on our roof which provide half of our energy consumption on a yearly basis. We also set up 11 large planters which produce a bounty of herbs, berries and vegetables every summer, and kale, garlic, leeks and chards during the shoulder seasons. In order to shield our potager from the road and create a peaceful setting, we planted a perimeter of tall drought tolerant grasses.  Our raspberry bushes were planted last year and they are now well established. They produced berries throughout the summer to the delight of our children. With this latest harvest, we decided to make a special treat...
