Thursday evening was one of the last blackberry picking days of the summer, and so we as a family went to our secret spot and picked them with the kids. My kids love picking berries. Usually they eat more than they pick, however to my surprise my youngest and oldest were actually pouring their bowls into the big pot of blackberries.
Our youngest is just the right size for picking the fat and juicy blackberries which are found down below the brambles near the ground.
Now you know any of our outings never go off without a hitch. Whether it is Lily digging tortoises from under bushes, the kids turning the water fountain into a shower or our car getting four flat tires, we always have something to laugh about or shake our heads about afterward.
Then I checked on my other summer wild fruit and discovered they’re ready for the picking too:
Ripe, black mustang grapes.
