Fresh berries are a favorite in our house. Not only are they tasty, they are packed full of antioxidants and beneficial nutrients. Picking berries simply oozes summer fun. But yet again, our overpacked summer schedule was conspiring to keep us from visiting our favorite u-pick berry farm. As luck would have it, our dog’s favorite walking spot also has an explosion of wild blackberries. So off we went, kids, buckets, and dog in tow, for a morning of picking wild blackberries.
