We went gooseberry pickin' with my momma this evening. All the daycare children were gone by 5:20 & so we got all decked out in blue jeans, long socks, boots & gloves. Then we donned the parfume of the outdoors, Tick & Mosquito spray.... The brands varied as we used a mix & match to cover all the bases.
The result was only 1 tick on all 4 of us, Ron, Kirsten, Mother & myself. Not a bad average I'd say & the tick hadn't bitten anyone yet. So I'm pleased. So is Kirsten cuz it was on her sock. (My little Miss Rachel was at the Community Cafe performing her civic duty as Ex. Director for the evening.)
We found a 1/2 gallon of gooseberries for our troubles. Troubles being snakes, ticks, mosquitos, thorns & poison ivy, poison oak & Virginia creeper.
