Week 15, Day 104, August 12, 2009 "Black Berries"

We have a lot of organic Blackberries around our house. They're organic because we just let them grow. There's no fertilizer sprayed on any of our property. (Why would I want my lawn to grown quickly? I'd just have to mow it more often.)

The berries may not be perfect, but I had somebody stop by my house this year wanting some of the plants and the berries. He makes black berry wine out of them. As a child he was friends with the previous home owners children. He picked the berries as a child, and remembered them being great. I'm not sure if they still stand up to his expectations, but we like to make blackberry cobbler out of them.

Lessons Learned:
  • This photoblog is becoming a historical document. Next year when I think, "When were the black berries ripe last year?", I can look it up on my blog. I think photographs are like that. They help us remember the past.
