Picking Raspberries

Originally uploaded by zannestar.

A visit to Summit Farm brought us many, many raspberries. This is the week to pick them! By the end of the week, the blueberries will be ready too. We’re going back in a few days to pick more for jam. Where’s your favorite place to pick berries and what do you do with them?
