I had a lovely week in Indiana visiting with Mom last week. One highlight – we went raspberry picking so we could make a pie! When I was younger, the whole family used to head to Anderson Orchard where we would pick apples, peaches and raspberries (although I don’t remember Mom making any pies back then!).
We picked over 3 lbs of berries which was pretty impressive as it was sooooo hot (95 degrees and 100% humidity). I’ve actually never seen so many berry plants – Anderson has certainly grown over the years!
Here mom gives advice on how to know which raspberries you should pick:
Thank goodness we didn’t get weighed before and after! We would have owed DOUBLE what we paid! 🙂
Here mom demonstrates how a cane can help with raspberry picking:
After about 45 minutes of picking raspberries, we were DONE!!
The (literal) fruits of our labor:
Fresh raspberry pie! Yummy!
