Picking Blackberries

We headed out to Fruits 'n Such orchard to pick blackberries and peaches.  Wow!  $45 later...we have a ton of fruit!  I can't imagine going there during the day (they're open some weeknights and Saturdays depending on the produce selection.)  It was extremely hot.  But we survived and as you can see, ended up with a fair share of blackberries and peaches.  The blackberries are delicious!  We just kept picking and picking. We saw so many ripe ones it was hard to pass them up!

Bryan washed them all and we have the first batch in the freezer (we wash them and freeze them on a cookie sheet and then move them to a ziplock bag so that they don't freeze as one big block of blackberry.)  

Landon had a great time trying to find the biggest one.  I think he may have ended up eating more than he put in the bucket.

  1. Those look so good! Blackberries are my favorite. Reminds me of my Grandmother's house. Did you head out there on the weekend or during the week?
