My lovely, yarnie friend, Cal Patch, had emailed me to say that there were some really yummy, organic raspberries to be had at a local orchard I hadn’t heard about. I didn’t need telling twice as I love-love-love fresh raspberries! As soon as we could, the fella, Lucky and I wrapped up in our handknitted goodness and set off down to Westwind Orchard.
The blackberries looked good and plump but weren’t yet ready for picking.
I picked a lot more raspberries than I have in this photo – they were sooooo good!
Lucky enjoyed running up and down the isles of berries and we played a good game of hide and seek.
We also bought 15lbs of Butternut Squash. I see a lot of delicious soups in our future!
After the berry picking we stopped off at Saunderskill Farms for a warm drink and a walk through their cornmaze.
It was a lot better than the cornmaze we visited last year, (which had been damaged by the hurricane) and was quite scary when we split up – I had to stop thinking about all the horror films I had watched featuring a chase through cornfields – yikes!
Yesterday, we needed to go grocery shopping and while out, stumbled upon a restaurant that sold cannoli. We had been craving cannoli for a couple of months, oh the power of suggestion, so we HAD to have one! The restaurant had a German theme with the walls decorated in cockoo clocks. It wasn’t until we sat down to eat that I noticed our attire was little bit German in style – how fitting! (The fella was wearing his lovely Centaurus sweater with a kerchief I made using some unmarked grey yarn.)
The cannoli were good and now we can get on with our lives, craving satisfied.
Back to eating healthily and I’ll leave you with a shot of the amount of bananas we have to buy every few days. I just love ’em!
