    You know the hot hazy days of summer are here when berry picking starts over at Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery just outside of Nellysford. This year was no exception. The hot humid weather didn’t stop folks from coming out Saturday and having a great time at the Blackberry Picking Festival. No, not the one you get your e-mail on and surf the web! These are the ones you eat! And they are good! But it’s not just blackberries, they have all kinds there they make their wine out of!
