Scholls, Oregon: It's berry season...the best day trip you can make!
|Teen granddaughter and 4 little grandchildren|
My life is SOOOOO good!
Then there was the question about whether the boys would be able to indure time in the sun, walking a long ways and avoiding the thorny black berries that grew in the the blue berry garden. Were those little people durable enough to do that very thing? Well, it turns out the answer is yes. They can pick berries, walk a long ways, and come home with only a few spots of sunburn on the places we missed with the spray on lotion. It turned out they might be better at picking black berries than I am. The bucket of "blue blues" were the best toy they had ever had. They pretended to pick and counted the good ones, imagined there were bugs in the bottom. All that good guy stuff. All in all I would not hesitate to take those little guys anywhere.
Now we get to the part where I got them buckled in...this country girl was not raised to be dumb. My daughter came along with the two little girl grandchildren. She could buckle an alligator in...she makes me so proud.
It was fun so I just thought I would let you know...it is Blue Berry season in Oregon!
The berry patch we went to is just east of Scholls. There is off road parking and the business will sell you buckets if you don't bring your own. A flat of Rasberries is $25.00. The flat is full to over
There is a little restaurant in an old hotel at the right in Scholls...remember this little place is just a wide place in the road. There is a nursery just across the road that had beautiful plants and baskets. You should go because it is a beautiful drive.
