Sunday morning we took off early to pick raspberries. I am starting to get into the hunting/gathering mode. Raspberries are high on my list. I put them on cookie sheets inside the freezer, when they are frozen I put two servings in a Ziploc freezer bag and then I put six of those bags into another larger freezer bag and next winter we will enjoy raspberries!
I had an appointment to pick berries at my cousins over by Frazee. Jen and Andy went along, they were good sports getting up early and entering the sauna that met us all outdoors. It was really warm and humid, the Deer flies were biting something fierce, the hum of bugs serenaded us as we picked. My cousin got a new pup..he eats raspberries right off the bushes. We almost filled our quota..we picked 23 pints. I wanted 30. It will do. It was miserable, sweat was dripping off my nose..and we about picked the entire patch. Lots more berries are coming on. We can go back again some other day.
On the way home we saw Wild Turkeys in the field..Jen wanted to see them up close and personal.
They were down in a ravine..hiding.. Her Father said “She better look out..Turkeys can be vicious.” So Jens Hero took off after her..
Here is one turkey..headed for the fence line. There were little turkeys too..and the little ones could fly!
Here is a big turkey:)
