A Berry Fun Day

As you see evidenced by the containers shown here, my nieces were quite hard at work picking blackberries today. (About as hardworking as I was ;-) We beat most of the rain and were able to visit two local farms on this weekend's Montgomery County Harvest Tour. Our activities included pick-your-own berries and flowers, visiting a beekeeper demonstration, petting rescued farm animals, and learning how wool becomes yarn. We also squeezed in a picnic lunch. Now we are blessed by a nice steady downpour. I hope it keeps up overnight at least.
