It wasn't long before realizing they needed more than long sleeves and a hoodie; shoes and long pants were a good idea too.
My sweet, neurotic border collie, Sadie, is a fine berry picker. The only problem, she doesn't add any to the bucket...maybe that's a good thing!
There is something about picking blackberries that hurries the morning along. I will mention to my sweetie "just 10 more minutes" and 30 minutes later we are in the next patch still picking. It's hard to turn away when you see those big juicy berries hanging there, ripe and calling to be picked.
Look closely, you will see 2 berry pickers in that patch.
