It's berry season!  Me, Mori, and Biff went and picked everything we could reach off the public portions of the mulberry tree and raspberry bushes near our house.  We almost filled a big yogurt container!

Yay, mulberries! The trees make such a mess, but the fruit are awesome. My sister and I snuck home many, many mulberries from the local park and planted the ones we didn't eat in our back yard...some years later our dad was like, "I just don't understand how a mulberry tree could have rooted in our back yard!?"

We harvested the berries for a few years before we told him...

Nice! We should check around for berries ourselves, there's gotta be some blackberries or something in the woods near our house. Aramos used to make homemade jams, I'd be interested to see if we can get him back into it!

Probably just eat them for the most part. They are already a perfectly cromulent food, no need to dilute them with my inferior cooking skills... but I tossed some in my hot cereal this morning and I'll probably do more things like that.

(Plus if we EAT them all without making any pies or crumbles then clearly we HAVE to go back for more :D :D ...)

What about you, Sneak? Do you or anyone else in your household have plans to cook with fruit?

Ooh, nice! We have raspberry bushes in our yard, which we didn't know until one day our landlord was in our yard getting berries from them, lol

There were some good berries in those bushes, I hope ya'll's are good too! :O

AHH that sounds delicious! <3 What are you going to do with them - cook, or just eat as is?

Oh my gosh with goats cheese sounds amazing! Well, it all sounds good because fresh fruit is the best. :D

Ahh I might put some aside for a next pay day treat! To be honest now it's summer I've meant to do one of those massively self indulgent nibbly platter things for me and Mumkhar for AGES - the works, like, fresh bread and fruit and cheese and honey nuts and six different kinds of salami and whatnot...*.*

Me and my sister just did our annual Fourth of July blackberry picking! There's a battlefield here where they do the fireworks, and my family always went to park in it hours early. One year while wandering the field and the nearby woods we found wild blackberries, so now every year we go disappear into the woods to find berries before the fireworks. Got a decent haul this year, but I think the deer stole all the easy ones, we had to lean far into these ten foot tall thorn bushes to get anything.

I'm pretty jealous of people that live in cities where they have "public" food just... there to pick? Like that's a thing that's done? This field is a twenty minute drive out and I'm pretty sure we're technically not supposed to be doing it, and that's literally the only place I can think of where there's stuff to pick at all.
