Berry Pickin'

Last night I went to pick blackberries with Sara Jackson and Allison Carter. It was GREAT! The berries were plentiful as the Gills and Julie Barrett joined in the fun. We went around 6 and Sara, Allison and I stayed until it was too dark to see the berries. The berries are hugh and delicious and there were no thorns on the bushes! You just walked down the rows and went from side to side filling your buckets. This was the last day to pick before the owner was going to go in and prune to prepare for next year! It was a nice night as we had rain earier in the day so it wasn't too hot and it was a good time to visit, too.

Thank you, Sara and Allison for including me and I can't wait until next year!

P.S. I did come in and get all my berries in the freezer so I won't get "wine" before I decide what I want to do with them all!!!!

I am so thankful you are there for Sara. She has missed being around all of her friends for the past two years. Can't wait to taste some of these berries. Love you. MJN
