Why buy berries in the late summer when you can pick them yourself?
Last fall, my husband and I bought our first home and we now have a spectacular view of the woods. Our daughter has recently discovered the joy of picking raspberries and now that she knows she is welcome to her own free buffet of raspberries, I'm often dragged into the woods by a wild 2 year old shouting, "Here, Mamma!" as soon as we reach the raspberry bushes.
Picking berries in late summer is a popular thing for the Viking people to do in the untamed Nordic wilderness. ;-) I often see others picking blueberries or raspberries along the forest, or wherever else wild berry bushes can be found.
