Last fall we found this cute berry farm, with a great brunch place, cute stores and a ‘u-pick’ for all sorts of berries. The only thing was… we missed berry picking season!! So all year we have been set on going back this summer at the right time and doing a bit of berry picking!
This past weekend was the weekend. Berry picking time! Now with all the rain and hail we’ve been having the only berry option for picking was sour cherries. We’ll take it!
After brunch we got ourselves some berry picking buckets. Worked our way through the maze of bushes and eventually managed to find the sour cherries. Follow the cherry signs!
Let the picking begin!!
In no time our buckets went from empty to overflowing!
Before and after 🙂
One successful group of berry pickers!
Now to baking everything sour cherry!
Happy Friday!! And even happier Friday of a long weekend 🙂
This week has been on and off sun and rain, and then more sun and rain!
Somehow its sunny during the day while I’m at work and then in the evening it rains like crazy. We’re talking thunder, lightening, hail… the works.
So! I’ve been reminiscing about warmth and our summer vacation a few weeks ago; especially our camping trip.
Basically this whole summer has been rainy but somehow we managed to plan a camping trip at just the right time and avoided rain… until the last day just as we were leaving, so it worked out perfectly!
We bought these extra comfy chairs that can recline, and then basically spent the entire time reading, eating, and going for walks. Talk about the perfect few days!
We cooked everything over the fire, which I was super proud of us for!
Breakfasts were the best: coffee, bacon and even monkey bread, all made over the fire! Yum!
Camping = relaxing. Nothing beats the peace and quiet.
Here’s hoping for sun this weekend!
