We’re surrounded by Blackberries , Huckleberries and Cranberries. Most of the Blackberries are ripening now so we all get together on our days off to pick berries and make pies or freeze them for a later date. My freezer is full and I’m ready to enjoy them for the next several months in Utah and Arizona. My partners, Pam and Les ( volunteers from Connecticut) get together and go berry hunting along with Blue at least once a week. Between the four of us we manage to harvest several pounds of Black Berries. Needless to say, Blue doesn’t share his with us, but he’s fun to watch as he plucks the berries off the vines without getting stuck by thorns.
