Last year, we had so much fun picking raspberries at the little organic berry farm outside of Madison. Wisconsin, like most of the US, had a terrible drought this year. That coupled with the high temps caused the raspberry yield to suffer.
Still, I loved LE's and my trips out there last year and wanted to return this year. It just happened that the short picking window fell the week that H was born. Nonetheless, with a 9 day old baby, our new family of 4 headed out to Blue Skies Berry Farm. Even though the berry availability was limited, the field was fairly empty due to school just starting back; we got first pick of the berries that had ripened overnight, allowing us to fill a couple of pints before returning home for naps.
