Post 5 of 5: Organic farms and U-pick Raspberries by stegaliu

I’m pretty sure Patrick agrees with me that, although there are other beautiful places to live, Westchester County is nothing to scoff at.  The Northeast comes packed with beautiful farms, foliage and weather (I mean we’re no SoCal but come on, who is?).  One particularly lovely day we made our way to Amawalk Farm for some delicious organic produce and to pick our own raspberries.

If you’ve ever been in the grocery store and picked up some berries and thought, “Wow, these are so expensive,” there’s a reason.  It’s time consuming work and the bushes are very prickly.  We picked 2 pints in about an hour.

But it was all worth it to bite into a sun warmed raspberry right off the bush, as nature intended.

Just so you know, these posts have made my days this week. I know you are very busy with work and many other things (like buying, selling homes, packing, moving, best friends’ weddings, first anniversary,etc.), but it’s been GREAT to see and hear from you everyday!!!! Love.Mom Helen
