I have been dying to pick some sort of berry for years.  My sister and I picked strawberries once in England with our aunt and friend and they were incredible.  They tasted incredible and fresh.  It was such a relief since we pick grapes once in Tuscany, Italy and let me tell you... they were definitely not ripe yet. Thirteen year old Cait ate some on a bet from her sister and a new friend and I'm still not sure if they were worth it haha.

Anyways... T and I went on Saturday and we were surrounded by thousands of blueberries!  I snuck a few on the spot and did not regret it.

It was super hot so T and I did not last long but we picked enough for me to enjoy for the week (he is not really a fan).  I had a mini panic moment when T reminded me of how crazy ticks are this summer up here and immediately regretted the maxi dress.  I inspected myself head to toe when we got in the car.   Needless to say, I obviously survived.

Do you have any favorite berry picking spot that we should check out?  We cannot wait for strawberry picking next spring but what should we do in the meantime?
