Our chores.


Chore #2: Blackberry picking.

Tools of trade: long sleeved shirt, pants, heavy duty gloves, snips, buckets to hang on your neck, wiliness to get scratched. Chances of having belly aches.
Frequency: daily.
Benefits: wwoofer's full bellies, extraordinary vitamins and antioxidants intake, happy winter times with lots and lots of blackberry jams, kompots, preserves and mostly wine (7-8 full jars will produce about 5 gallons of wine. Not bad, ah?). Leftover pulp will also be made into special goat treats, supplemented with calcium.
