My disappointment and preoccupation with the raspberries led to a decrease in my listening abilities. The girl at the store counter was telling me how to get to the blueberries, but the whole time I was thinking "What about the raspberries?! I don't care about the blueberries. Raspberries, raspberries, raspberries!". So once we left the little store, we ventured out into the orchard, but had no idea which way to go. We ended up by the apples (and ate one, of course) with no berries in sight.
There was an old woman in one of the rows of apple trees, pruning and clipping the branches. She had one of those little vehicles that you can drive around on uneven terrain and when I asked her how to get to the blueberries, she kindly offered us a ride over to them since it was a bit of a walk. So we got to ride around through the row of apple trees and down a hill to where the blueberry bushes were!

Chris and I attempted to pick raspberries again this past weekend, but they were (once again) extremely scarce and we decided to give up. I am planning on trying a third time with my friend on Sunday at an orchard that actually just started their raspberry season, so I'm having good feelings about it. Be on the lookout for some yummy blueberry and raspberry treats soon! :)
