We have been beyond blessed with an abundance of berries this month. Today as I was driving home from piano lessons with my kids, I received a phone call from a neighbor and fellow church member, inviting us to come black raspberry picking. We jumped at the chance. My kids LOVE picking berries, and someday, I hope to have huge berry patches of my own, but for now we are just getting started.
These two are my little gardeners. We picked a full pail in under 30 minutes, which is pretty good when dealing with pokey, scratchy raspberry bushes.
I think she was more concerned with tasting, then picking. They were delicious!
And he was more concerned with tree climbing! It was a great, unexpected treat, added to our day!
I made a raspberry crisp for dinner (I don't do pie), and froze a few gallon bags. I left some in the fridge for fresh eating.
I am thankful, humbled, and so grateful for the generosity of these wonderful new friends, here in our community. They are such a loving, kind, generous group of people, and I am blessed to be a part of it!
