blackberriesSo today a couple of friends and I went to Ambrose Farm for some fresh blackberries and blueberries. I was somewhat disappointed in the supply of the turned ones as there were more red blackberries than black ones but I managed to haul in about 3 lbs which I was pleased with. I think I may go back this Friday when I am off to pick some more because all the red ones will have ripened by then and hopefully there will still be some left.

They had more blueberry plants than blackberry ones which I found odd but hey it was not my farm. I’d have loaded up on the blackberry ones myself just because I dearly love blackberries. All total though I paid about $18.00 for fresh berries. I’m pretty pleased.

It was effin hot though. I wore shorts and a t-shirt and I was completely and utterly drenched from sweat. That was just the beginning of my day though because when I got home, I cleaned my berries and let them drain while I went to mow the lawns and got drenched again. It’s effin hot here man. Supposed to get to 101 and probably is by now. I am finally getting something to eat now as I went to the store after I took a shower and put a load of clothes in the washer. There is no way I am going to the gym today as I am sore in spots I didn’t know I worked looking for berries lol

    You must live in Florida. It said the temp got to 101 the other day, you wouldn’t have caught me picking berries. Good haul though! $18 isnt bad for 5 lbs of fresh berries!
