‘Tis the season…

…for blackberries, that is – at least in my corner of the world…


I stumbled on this patch along the Cross Kirkland Corridor on my way to a nice private brunch. I immediately drained my cup of tea and refilled it with sweetness. Then on my way back I filled all the discarded fast food containers I could find – that includes the fast food container down at the bottom of my gullet. As you can see, there are still plenty left over for you.

Might I share my little blackberry picking method?

Try to grab two at once, but only take the first one to give up.

The method may not satisfy an expert baker, as the hanger-on is probably preserving its tartness, but for my personal sweet tooth. This method works nicely.
