Berry picking!

BUGS Summer Camp is officially in session! We just finished our first week and it was lots of fun. On Tuesday, Ms. Brittany and I took the girls to Larriland Farm in Western Howard County to pick raspberries. This is always a fun and relaxing trip because we get to spend time outdoors together while eating lots and lots of delicious, perfectly ripe and fresh fruit right from the bush. The BUGS students did a great job finding and picking the ripest berries we could find, and by the end we had pounds and pounds of berries to take home with us!

The next day in cooking class, we did a blind taste test between raspberries from the grocery store and the raspberries that we picked from the farm. It was easy for everyone to tell the difference because both the taste and texture are really different. Most of us agreed that the berries from the farm were much tastier! After that, we made a delicious berry crisp using the raspberries from Larriland. And, while we waited for the crisp to bake, we snacked on cucumbers we picked from our garden. Gotta love the summer! :)
