There is some great berry picking available this week in Rochester! At least there was on Tuesday. I pretty much filled a whole quart of black raspberries at one bush. Filled 4 quarts total, and have been eating berries for the rest of the week. Amazingly delicious.
I came upon one bush that looked to be fantastic picking…lots of beautifully ripe glossy black berries. I started in on it and then found why this bush had been passed over: Mad Guard Bee!!
It's a tiny little home he's got, but he looks to be fiercely protecting it.
