Raspberries    (Continued)

Apples, raspberries, cabbage, blackberries, and tomatoes grow here. Milwaukee public school students are constantly stopping by the farm and learning how to grow fruits and vegetables.

Shoving raspberries in my mouth, I saw a student approach me. “What is that?” he asked.

“A raspberry. Here, try one!” How in the world had he never had a raspberry? I handed him one. Students began to gather around me, fascinated by the foreign fruit. The plant's branches were bare within seconds. None had ever even seen a raspberry. How? Why?

Even the littlest things like a raspberry can change your outlook. These children had never even seen a raspberry, while I've been eating them my whole life.
