We're Jammin'

Blackberry season is in full effect... just look at our latest walk results! There is just something so wonderful about foraging out in nature for food. The fact that it is free doesn't hurt, either.

To add to the berry goodness we've been enjoying - last week we went blueberry picking with our new friends. They took us to the sweetest little U-pick farm hidden away in plain view (I love places like that). The girls wore their strawberry berry picking dresses.

We picked, we chatted, we snacked, we picked some more...

The farm's cat/tour guide kept us company.

We enjoyed a little picnic taking in the beautiful scenery as the girls caught grasshoppers, played games and flew wooden planes.

We checked out the rest of the farm for inspiration.
Then after spending almost the whole day there it was time to go pick up Kevin from work.

But I got distracted on the way there and stopped to photograph the beauty around us.

Baby L and C fell asleep on the drive so K and I played in the van while waiting for Kevin to get out of work.

Once we were home it was time to extend our summer by freezing and jamming our berries. By the way, I have to agree with all of you the Pomonas Universal Pectin works so much better for canning with out sugar!

We are in a state of pure berry bliss and we hope you are, too!
