A QUEST FOR BERRIES!!!
A young mother came to the farm to pick berries this week. Tall, athletic, with a newborn and a toddler. She stated they were on a quest for berries. I informed her that the berry patch was a ways away, would she be able to make the trek? She informed Me that they came prepared. I gave her a bucket, pointed the way and they were off. She detoured back to her vehicle, and in a snap, she came from behind the auto with a stroller, decked out with drinkholders, snack sacks, an umbrella type gadget, a berry bucket, diaper bag, and who knows what all else hanging from it......oh, and a toddler in the seat, and a baby papoosed to her front. This girl was ready! She jaunted down to the blackberry patch, picked her some blackberries, and back she came! She weighed in her berries, packed up all of her paraphanalia and off she went......her quest complete. She didn't break a sweat! I was tired just watching her. I will never complain about being weary, ever again. From our farmstead to your table thank you for all of your support!!!
