A Perfect Day For Berry Picking
We left early, first heading to St Andrews for a good pile of tomato cages I found on Kijiji. The sky was very dark and that rain just poured down all the way from Prescott! Marty kept looking at me as if to say, "Seriously? We are really doing this?" I said it couldn't last forever. Things did indeed lighten up a bit on our way east.
Then to our appointment for berry picking. I am sure they were surprised we actually showed up. It wasn't raining too badly at that point.
We started with the black raspberries. Just LOOK at them!
It was time to move on to the currants.
I love visiting the blueberry farm as the owners are lovely people and the layout is wonderful and the fruit is delicious! Looking forward to next year.
Did I mention it was Marty's birthday today? Yeah. He always wanted to pick berries in the rain. And today he got his wish (insert sarcastic tone here, but hey! Isn't that what makes for good memories?)
We were soaked to the skin, by the time we were done, in spite of the raincoats. Good thing we are waterproof. It was a great outing, regardless of the weather. Of course the sun was out when we got back home again.
