If this doesn't humble a gal nothing will. Yep that's me. Not one of my better pictures. One of my blog followers said they would like to see me in my berry picking gear. I took it more of a "double dog dare you!" Well here you go Margaret, scary huh? The long sleeves were smothering me, by the time I'd get back to the house I would be soaked with sweat from head to toe, and physically weak. So yesterday I bravely tried short sleeves and taking a break at the halfway point in the property. I also decided to get rid of the garden hoe and take the machete.
It serves two purposes, protection from critters, and protection from thorny vines.
Lobo always goes along with me as added protection. Not that I want or need him, he takes it upon himself. Never getting out of eyesight. Occasionally he'll take a dip in the pond to cool off and get a drink. It's funny how he doesn't feel a need to protect Ross when they go for walks around the property, Lobo always takes off on his own. What makes him think I need the protection? I'm glad he's there you never know what can jump out of the weeds!

I've never seen the vines so loaded with berries. Yesterday another gallon of picked raspberries, that's about 3 hours of sweating.
No picking today! Yeah! I'm going to do some sewing. Hopefully I can get a flimsy done by tomorrow.
