Berry Picking


I look forward to this time of year, every year. Its berry season here in Colorado and the raspberries and strawberries are rip for picking! We found a gem in a haystack in Colorado. A pick your own berry farm! We went last year and returned this year as well, had so much fun. I LOVE picking berries and not afraid to wade shoulder deep in some thorny patches filled with bees in search of that honey hole patch with juicy ripe Red berries. There is just something about it, I can't explain. Maybe because its all natural, no pesticides, organic. Or the fact the berries just taste better knowing they were picked from our fruits of labor? Every year we land here, every year we will return. We got tons of strawberries, raspberries, Golden Raspberries, Zucchini, Specialty Melons, Green Tomatoes

  1. Wow, I know it must have been a lot of fun...I love it too,last year we went for blueberry picking, they were the best I have ever tasted. We ended up bringing a lot of them out of greed...we just went crazy there, but we finally used all of it in something!
