Hi there!

Because of your post about Petals from the Past, I took my daughters there yesterday to pick blackberries. Wow, the blackberries were so big! I can't wait to go back when their figs, Asian pears, and persimons are ready for picking. We love picking apples in North Carolina in October and now, we have a place that's closer to home that we can go for fun.
