The berry Pickers
This morning we went Blackberry picking with our friends Annie and Ron and Cody, Ty, and Luke. It was so much fun. Ron and I are very serious pickers!! Out here Berries just grow everywhere. Like the wildflowers in Texas. Seriously, these were just growing on the side of the road. Ron found a great place that he passes in the morning when he runs. Parker takes her job very seriously, but he boys are much more concerned with eating. Ron grew up picking berries with his family. They would go home and have blackberry milkshakes. Of course, we HAD to follow tradition!! I made two blackberry crips and cleaned and froze the rest. Annie and I have orders to make Freezer Jam. I want to try to make Blackberry syrup. I will let you know how it goes!!
