Our raspberries are coming in! We all like raspberries but Julie LOVES them. Every day she goes by the vines and grazes on the berries. So the other evening she had went to close the chicken lot gate and thought she would pick her a few berries while she was out there. As she was picking she noticed a calf very close to the garden fence. She thought she would keep an eye on it as it looked like it was thinking about trying to get in the garden. She picks a few more berries and hears the calf make a strange noise. She looks at it again, it looks at her and guess what? It is not a calf but a bear!! Probably about 100 ft from where she is!! She starts walking slowly back toward the house. The bear notices her movement and starts slowly going up the field. She comes and gets us to see it. It goes up the field to the top of the hill and then goes under the fence and out into open pasture (hopefully not to return). Julie then returns to picking her raspberries. I told her I guess that means she is a true country girl-not even a bear can stop her from picking berries!!
Enjoy your day and God bless.
At least she didn’t let the bear ruin her berry picking!
It is good to hear that the bear just wanted a few berries too. smile Glad Julie made it home safely and got to go back for more berries. smile The months seem to keep slipping by here. We are in an area that is irrigated for cherries, blueberries, and apples … a lot of apples. smile We keep talking about going to pick cherries but I tend to forget about other berries that come on the same time. Have a great day and stay safe in the berry fields. smile Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!
