Fruits of Summer: The Race is on!

It’s that time of year when Mother Nature has been kind enough to bless us once again with a fruit harvest. You might think there’s nothing to picking fruit, picking fruit is the easy part……..

The blueberries are ripe for the picking!

I even get help from this guy, Dylan our Golden, at least he's getting mostly green berries.....

....until he discovered the BOWL!

And than it's a race to beat these wall sitters to the berries.....they can clear a shrub in a single day!

The blackberries are ripening, no help from Dylan dog with these since they have thorns!

Then it was off to see about gathering some peaches....think clobber!

Dylan dog likes picking peaches too.....sorry the picture is a bit fuzzy but the boy was in motion!

.....until he discovers the BUCKET!

Is there anything better than enjoying a fresh picked peach on a warm summer day? Mother Nature has been good to us! Dylan and I hope everyone is enjoying the fruits of summer too!
