Berri Licious

For the first time this year we tried our hand at blackberry picking. We found a great place up in Apple Hill called Patrick's Fresh Berry Farm and stopped on our way home from Tahoe. The girls had a great time picking the berries and plopping them into the provided buckets. They also had a great time eating about every other berry they picked - shhhhhh don't tell! The best part of this place, besides the beauty, was the fact that many of the varieties were thornless - good news, no stickies meant no tears!!! Once we got our little beauties home we had grand plans of making blackberry jam, no such luck though - we couldn't stop eating them and by the time I got the supplies for jam making they were all gone. Oh well I guess that just means we need to make another trip to Patrick's :)
