Can You Say BlackBerry Season !

Its black berry season here on the west coast.  One of my favorite things.  As soon as you start to get around the central coast you start to run into large patches of blackberry bushes, every where.  Its awesome.  You can take a few minutes from your hike, or drive,  stop and have a black berry meal.  Its doesn't cost any money and its from the wild soil that is still mineral rich.  No pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers.  Its food the way god intended us to have it.   O how I love Blackberry Season.  For 2 months of the year this part of California, and further north, is a blackberry festival.  Family, friends, the creatures that dwell in this land, all feast on this wonderful berry.  Blackberry pie, blackberry muffins, blackberry ice cream, blackberry cake, the list is endless.  Theres nothing like having stained purple figures and lips, after a good day of blackberry pickin.

  1. Ahhh, nothing better than wild sun-warmed blackberries! I lived in Oregon for awhile and that is one of the best memories.
