Last weekend I made a trip to Long Island to go berry picking. It was a day filled with merriment, but also sore legs and creaking backs. I had to shove my face in the ground to pick the last remaining edible strawberries of the late season. I also tried snap pea ice cream for the first time, the you-pick farm made their own, and it was interesting, but I didn't love it. At the end of the day I came home with two heaping pints of fresh raspberries and strawberries. What better activity to do other than make cheesecake?
