Wild Blackberries!

We went out for a long bike ride this past Friday. We had no idea it would turn into a foraging adventure. Blackberries were growing abundantly all over in places most people won’t go -you’d actually have to climb rocks and be near bees! Could this be? Our own ‘private’ blackberry patch! We ended up with about 2 pounds of fresh wild blackberries and promptly turned those into a wonderful pie. I had a nice slice for breakfast this morning with coffee.

Our foraging also led us to some wild onions. We grabbed a few handfuls and used them to spice up our homemade stir-fry. It was delicious!

We’re heading out for a long walk Sunday to get more ripe blackberries. Hopefully there are more goodies for us to find and enjoy.
