raspberry picking


we really love going berry picking in the summer.  it has somewhat become a little tradition of ours over the last few years.  nothing beats picking your own fresh berries.  in june, we picked strawberries at a local farm, and ever since we have been looking forward to picking other berries this summer too.

early on saturday morning, we took at trip out to noxen, pa to pick red raspberries.  it was a bit far, but it was a nice day for a drive, and it's hard to find farms in our area that offer pick-your-own raspberries.  the last time we picked raspberries was two years ago, so we were excited to go again.

the weather was a bit overcast and dreary, but luckily the rain held out for us while we picked raspberries.  there was hardly anyone else there and we felt like we had the farm to ourselves.  it was so peaceful and quiet out there in the middle of nowhere.  we walked through the rows and rows of raspberry bushes picking (and tasting) the different varieties of raspberries.  it was a lot of fun.  we picked a bunch of raspberries and can't wait to eat them this week!


love, laurie

That looks like fun. I remember picking and eating black raspberries that we grew in our backyard when I was a kid. They were delicious and made great jam and pies!
