You pick apples in the fall and berries in the summer.
So that's what we did!
This was a first time berry picking trip for the whole family. We had also never tasted black raspberries, red raspberries yes, but not black. How different can they taste? They were DELICIOUS!
The farm we picked at was nice. It wasn't packed with people and the employees were very helpful. The business was very kid friendly which was a plus. They gave each of the kids their own little bucket to pick raspberries with and then a larger bucket that we could all contribute too.
There is definitely some work required for black raspberry picking.
The difficult part was moving around the leaves without getting pricked. Raspberry bushes have thorns.
Even with thorns The Dragons did a great job at finding their own berries.
Jerry and I picked too :)
As it goes though as soon as we get there and are out picking berries everyone, even daddy, had to go to the bathroom.
When our bucket was full of 5 lbs of black raspberries we headed back to the shop.
After our purchase and a free black raspberry pie recipe we headed outside to have a picnic lunch with fresh picked black raspberries on the side.
We had a wonderful time :)
