The tradition of picking raspberries with sissie-in-laws and cousins started a couple years ago and is here to stay.
There is something about picking raspberries that channels my grandma. Being in the heat of the day pulling those raspberries off the bush makes me giddy! While the little ones chased the kitties, ran down the rows of raspberry bushes and collected raspberries (one for them, one for the container);
Take a morning or evening to experience raspberry picking. You too may want to add it as a new tradition:)
