Way back, even before my parents moved my family out to the country, we had a huge strawberry patch in our back yard that was always swarmed by snails. One day, Mom and Dad brought some ducks home and the snails were history! Strawberry glory!
Later, grown with kids of my own, care packages would come from Mom…homemade marianberry jam. Such a delicious treat on my toast for breakfast!
Last year, I had some new friends to pick berries with. Sammy and Bella got up with me every morning and made the trek out to the hedgerow where the berries were waiting.
This year, go pick yourself some berries. You’ll have a nice treat to take home and maybe even some precious memories. Like this one:
Picking berries...who knew?
Lots of "berry" good adventures over on our FB page too. www.facebook.com/thepocketfarmer I hope to see you there! :)
