Last Saturday, we drove up to Spiral Path Farm for pick your own black raspberries. It was one of the "perks" of being a member of the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm. Since we are medium share members, we were allowed to pick 2 quarts. My parents (Grammie and Poppy) are also members, so they drove up for their 2 quarts as well. Dawson's parents (Nanny and Grandpa) and his middle brother joined us to help in the picking (and eating) of the black raspberries.
I had never picked black raspberries before, so this was a first for me. It was a lot of fun, but I was so glad that we had the help of Nanny, Grandpa, and my brother in law. Here is a photo of some of the fruit of our labor:
Can you tell which hand I picked with? It was not only red, but my arm looked like I had gotten in a fight with a cat! I had quite a few scratches from the thorns/stickers/whatever they were, but no blood was drawn, and they healed rather quickly.
We had a great time at the farm, and even little Brady enjoyed eating some of the raspberries!
