Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
I went out to pick some fresh blackberries to eat for breakfast and was so disappointed to find that they were all shriveled up!
Oh my goodness, I'm too late, I've missed the season. I was hoping to pick some for my morning meal and then go out later in the day to pick a large bucketful to make a cobbler and perhaps freeze some. But I have missed my opportunity.
There's a few good ones left, but they are on the bushes that are tall and set back.
I was determined to at least get enough to eat for my breakfast! So I headed into the deep!
I couldn't quite reach them all, but I picked a few.
My pants picked up a few things too. Ugh, these fuzzy, sticky burrs are so annoying! They are so sticky and just latch on to clothes. The only way to remove them is to pick them off one by one. I guess it's just part of the farm life, I even have them my pajamas!
Wow, this seems to be all I can find.
I am just kicking myself because there was such a bounty just a few weeks ago and I missed the window.
This looks like it's as good as it's gonna get, let's head back to the house.
My pitiful bounty awaiting their bath. Oh well, a few berries is better than none!
Even though I didn't find many, they sure do look good!
And they tasted wonderful too! Next year I will have to remember to pick them in late August/early September when they are at their peak.
