We are in the very middle of summer now (oh my, where has all the time gone?!). And even though we don’t have particularly warm weather around these parts at the moment (I haven’t gone swimming for weeks!) there are other things that tell you it’s summer.
Right now we are in the midst of the berry season. Aaah, what a lovely season that is! There are berries everywhere around here now! Raspberries, cherries, blueberries…. Just a few kilometers from our house there is this place, in the forest, where there are just sooo many blueberries!! Whichever direction you look, there are blueberries as far as you can see! It’s amazing! Of course we have been doing quite a lot of picking. I have taken the bike there several days in a row now and picked a few liters every time. My fingers are almost permanently blue these days. 😉 Then we freeze most of them, and make pies and other yummy stuff with the rest!
Our plums are also ripening fast. They are not quite ready yet, but once they are; oh! will we have a lot of plums?! By the look of it I think we will have more plums this year than we have ever had before! Can’t wait! 😀
