Don't Overlook the Purple

Just because the salmon are starting to run, don't forget about the berries!

Blackberries are ripe and everywhere. We can pick-em-by-the-handful!

The kids are getting good at picking...
This time of year we keep a few empty buckets handy.

And here's the payoff - homemade Blackberry ice cream!
Alot of jam, cobbler, and pie, too!
As prolific and troublesome as blackberries are in the Pacific NorthWest, they do have a sweet spot in our hearts.
