Ruby Red Berries

I got a call today from a couple in our church. They told us they had picked their fill of raspberries and to come over and help ourselves. We had lunch, cleaned up, and went over to pick. The branches were bending over because the berries were so full.

Mmmmmmmmm, good!

I had to keep reminding the children to lift up the branches to find the berries hiding underneath.

Emily was very proud of herself.

However, she fizzled fairly quickly and was off to play in the sandbox.

I came home with enough berries for 4 pies, a potful of fresh picked spinach for dinner, lettuce, and a green pepper.

Thanks to our friend's generosity, it was a bountiful afternoon!
