Weather conditions here in NC Missouri have made for a bumper crop of raspberries. Haven't seen them this abundant or large in a long time. Course the stinging nettle, ragweed, horseweed and poisen ivey are just as abundunt to say nothing about the chiggers and ticks. Picked about 4 gallons last weekend but am paying the price now, OUCH !! Soaked myself in Deep Woods Off too.

Cripes I'm glad you mentioned that, we'll be at
camp next weekend (a week from friday) and
my raspberries should be just starting to get
eatable. I've still got to take the weedwhacker
to some of them that fall in the road, but I'll
definately bring a berry bucket out and pick
first. Pick enough and grandmother will make
us a pie before we leave!

We got blackberries here . We hit the patches in the cow pasture and pick the edges the ones in the middle are for the birds . I`ll do some bushhogin just before time to pick . A gal. of berries aint worth gettin one chigger on Mr. Winky and friends!!!

Makes Ya sometimes wonder if it's worth tha pain!I used ta pick Sand Cherrys every Year, dearly like em but finally decideded tha ticks deserved em more'un Me.
Same goes for Chiggers'n Blackberrys.
When I was a Young'n in My Youth which has been a few days agone I'd go out wearin nothin but a pair of bibbers'n My own hide and pick Gooseberrys. Yeller jackets,Wasps,Bees,Hornets,bugs on tha ground'n snakes after Them. Would'nt do that now'a'days for no price!!!!
Would have ta think a spell on them rasberrys tho,surely do like em....

Try this recipie and you'll go after them. One hot toaster waffle (Eggo). Two scoops vanilla ice cream (ho made best, store bought OK ). Sprinkle a handful (or two) fresh picked raspberries over the whole mess. Go ahead, I dare ya.
