It is that time of year. The berries are out! We have been spending all our spare time picking low bush blueberries. It also means that the bears are leaving us alone. They want berries even more than we do.
The girls have really gotten into picking berries this year. Vivi is eating almost all that she picks, but Zoey is doing a great job filling the bucket.
Last year I rode my bike about 3 miles out the pass, picked loads of berries and rode back in. This year I found this fabulous site a mere stone's throw from the house. I know I walked this meadow last year, but I think it caught too much sun and the berries were not as good.
Also we are smoking fish tonight. It's also trash night, so I'll let you know if we have any furry visitors. It could be interesting.
