The berry patch has fulfilled its destiny! Har!
The fam all trooped down to the end of the yard today for some pickin. The Grumble soon lost interest and gained a new fear of prickers but the Bean did great. She picked almost as much as myself and the Hubby. 3 cups altogether after only 15 minutes or so and we should have an equal yield next weekend. Not bad for a patch thats only about 15’x15′. This afternoon we are headed off to the Hubby’s parents house for a small family birthday party for Hubby’s middle brother. So we decided to make a pie for the bro. We needed five cups of berries for my favorite spicy berry pie so we substituted 2 cups of nice sweet Gala apples. We quick sliced the apples and let the kids chop em’ up to berry sized pieces. I know I promised pics of the two little embroidered tops but they are in the wash at the moment so you’ll just have to wait ;P
Oh and here is a good reason not to get too caught up in roaming blogland and showing your husband all of the cute little robots over at Hillary’s place:
I’m not worried. It’ll still be super yummylicious. Mmmmmmm, pie.
