[ft-l] It's berry time!

I hiked 12 miles in Tosahatchee State Reserve yesterday.  Only wildlife was 
an armadillo.  Most of the berries I passed were still a week or so away from 
being ripe, but I did taste the season's first blackberries and blueberries.  
I saw a profusion that will pull me back next weekend.  Looks to be a nice 
crop despite the dry weather.

For some reason two blueberry bushes were ahead of the others and yielded me 
a handful of exquisite ripe berries.  It's such a simple joy, but it made the 
long hike in hot temperatures well worth it.

Anyone else have berry reports?  Don't keep all the info secret!  :)

Happy trails,

Solar Bear
