Even Red Raspberries Abound Now You probably won't find red raspberries in the supermarket this fall, but Vollie Mae Sisson, Maria Sisson, 7, and Elvira Robinson (above) had not trouble filling their boxes with these scarce, delicious berries at the Makielski farm on Platt Road this past week. 'Pick-your-own' farms in the area began their operations to save on labor costs - a savings that is passed on to consumers who also appreciate the added advantage of having fresher produce. More and more people are turning to canning and freezing various kinds of produce, these farmers say, as food prices increase.
