One of my berry favorite things

I pretty much love anything that has to do with raspberries, I love to pick them as much as I love to eat them. Graci is my substitute picker this year and is doing a great job. She picks, brings them in and the boys eat them like its popcorn. I have cherished memories of picking berries with my Grma Brown. Grma would let us help her make jam and then in the winter when we went for a visit we would go down into the cellar and find a jar of jam or sauce with our name on it. I have a nice patch in the back yard. Both Jons sister and brother have started a patch of thier own from my plants. The other day when I was on the phone to Jons sister Kaye she said picking berries for her was her "Fall Utopia" I agree. I love to share my berries, it thrills my heart to let my nieces and nephews pick and eat until they are full. When our Randi was back for a visit 2 weeks ago we took turns taking her little Elijah out to the berries, more cherished memories.

My favorite berry memories are picking raspberries at Frances and Ed's. Do you remember their patch?
