Living in a Land of Berries

If a person could live solely on berries, the months between July and October would find us healthy and happy.

I have been picking a gallon or two of raspberries every other day and yet the bushes keep producing.

Even our strawberry patch continues to supply a few gems every day or two, and now the wild blackberries are in full swing.

Aren't they pretty?

Wow, those blackberries are so shiny, did you polish them? lol. I wish I had a supply of berries so close to hand. My daughter loves fruit but anything ending in 'berry' is very expensive here in the UK!

A gallon or two of reaspberries?! Sounds like heaven! And the blackberries look lucious!

YUMM! My neighbor was telling me that the little country road near us has a load of blackberry bushes in full bloom. I need to send my kids out with a bucket. Raspberries--yumm. I've been making this dessert lately, super easy and the family loves it:
