Blackberries and Blueberries

blackberries [1]So 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.

blueberries [2]Then we headed to the other side to pick some blueberries and there were more of those than the blackberries and I make about a 2 lbs haul of that and there were still tons of blueberries 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!
