I went to pick the blackberries, but it's a little late in the season for that. While there are still berries to pick, the selection is getting a little wilted. I had no problem picking 2 lbs worth in less than 15 minutes. I also saw some quite interesting-looking bugs (big ones at that) and sweat off about 5 lbs (it was 98 degrees today).
|Children of the Corn? Anyone?|
I was also able to pick my own corn ($3 a dozen) and tomatoes ($1 per lb). Picking the corn brought back some eerie memories of "Children of the Corn" which I insisted on watching when I was 11. I quickly picked my ears and went onto the tomato vines.
I'm so excited for all my new fresh – and local – produce. I ended up with 10 ears of corn, 2.5 lbs of tomatoes and 2 lbs of blackberries for $9. I can't wait to bake with the blackberries...I'm thinking some sort of cake for the weekend....stay tuned!
