Chiggers love Quilters
We drove the eight hours to Mother and Gene's house and hit the ground picking. We picked about three gallons of blueberries before it got too dark to see the berries. Then, we crashed and got up by 6:30 the next morning and picked nearly four more gallons. Apparently, chiggers have a particular fondness for quilters because Brandy and I both coated our bodies with sulphur powder but we were still the main course. Luckily, we are not going to a baseball game because we might get mistaken for one of the players.... no spitting or balls of any kind involved, but, oi, oi, oi, the scratching!!!
