Story – The Daily Post

For this week’s challenge, do some visual storytelling with your photography. As always, I’m excited to see what you all share.

Blueberry picking

Teaching children about the natural world should be treated as one of the most important events of their lives. ~ Thomas Berry ~

I love that quote and agree. Teaching our children and grandchildren of our connection with nature, showing them the connection between food and nature them to connect with the source. Being out in the field of blueberry bushes on a sunny summer day is a blessed experience. If you have the ability to experience this with children you will both remember this for life.

I still remember being in the fields with my mother and aunts picking blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and apples. Having a garden in my own yard is always a blessing and one I hope to repeat this year. My sister and I pick fruit when in season and freeze bags to enjoy in the cold winter months. I still have several bags of strawberries – the blueberries did not last all winter this year so I know to pick more this summer. What a treat to open a bag of frozen fruit in mid-winter knowing they were picked from the vine with my own hands.

Do you have a special fruit or vegetable that you love to grown and/or pick?
