Berry Pickin’ With Becks

This past Tuesday when Laura and Beckham woke up we headed south a few miles to The Berry Patch. It is a farm for picking Blackberries and Blueberries. Unfortunately the blueberries are scarce this year due to global cooling. In April the bushes all thought it was spring and grew little flowers which will turn into blueberries later. Then as a result of Al Gore’s global warming it froze here for a few days even leaving snow on the ground. This killed the flowers and left The Berry Patch with few berries to be picked. We were able to buy fresh picked blueberries from Michigan that are driven down every few days. As for blackberries, they bloom later and survived the threat of global cooling. We were a week or so too early for tons of them, but found a pound worth of giant plump blackberries. Becks really learned how to pick only the black ones which was better than his mother was able to do. Today we had blueberry muffins Laura made and have eaten some really great blackberries. I think we will begin doing this on a regular basis due to the close proximity of the place.

    Make sure you include your friends the Creecys when you gather blueberries or blackberries next time! We love em! We are planning to grow some blackberries this next year- Texas style, in cinder blocks.
