A Family Affair

The berries are getting outta control.
The many hours spent weeding and mulching maybe made a difference. I can't really tell. There no longer is any space between the plants and the grass crept through anyway. But after a cool, unproductive summer, we are finally seeing some hope with ripening berries making an appearance.

Everyone got engaged in the task of harvesting before the birds got all the berries.

It was a family affair, with even my brother put to work.

Blueberries and strawberries.

We'll have to pick again in just a few days and keep it up until well into September.

The reward.
Bits and scraps of leftover wedding cake (orange) and light cream icing combined with fresh berrries...

For a Sunday church potluck trifle.
