Last week we went berry picking with our good friends the Goodwins. They had found a patch like nothing we had ever seen! The berries were so thick that we stuffed our selves and came home with plenty to can and make preserves with. They say a picture is worth a thousand words - so I'll let them do most of the talking. :-)
Dustin came up with an innovative way to be able to pick with both hands simultaneously. He ended up with twice the berries Janet picked - though that may have had something to do with her chasing little ones :-)
As you can see, more blackberries went into little mouths than into little baskets!
Look at that mother lode
Above is Sara - she was a real help with the kiddos. Below is Atlanta ( her sister-in-law) with her sweet baby Marian taking a little break at the truck.
Check out the harvest! We ended up with about three gallons for just our family.
And they were so big! Many fruits were over an inch long.What a fun day. I'd say summer is truly upon us!
