It has been so nice this Summer to have time to do things that I have wanted to do but just couldn’t get around to. One of those things is picking berries at some of the local farms.
On Friday, I traveled to Washington Farms to see what was still available. The farm is a favorite place for many people, .
with Strawberries in April, Blueberries and Blackberries in the Summer, Pumpkins in the Fall, and a Corn Maze as well.
When I arrived just after they opened, I was one of three cars. I asked about which berries were available and they told me to go to the Blackberries first as they would only bear a few pickings.
I had a wonderful time walking down the rows of beautiful plants and picking the plump, juicy berries…..
I loved the colors of the new berries that were just starting to form. It didn’t take long to have a full gallon…..
….although I did eat a few along the way.
Next, I moved to the Blueberry bushes…..
Picking was a bit slower here but I once again enjoyed the colors of the ripening fruit…..
The results were wonderful……
The morning was perfect, with clouds overhead and a cool breeze blowing. I will definitely find time to do this again!!!!
