This past weekend, 2nd Family said that some of the dewberries have started to ripen. It's still a little early, but we decided to roam around and see what we could find. As you can see in this picture, some are ripe, some are almost ripe and yet more are still a couple weeks away.
One of our dear friends was out there to visit us and see the house in person, so we took one of these buckets and she and I went to gather some berries.
About 20 minutes (and some red stained fingers) later, we had gathered this bucket full of fresh dewberries.
We brought them home, rinsed them off and put them in a bowl in the fridge. We ended up with about 6 cups total. Not sure what we'll do with them yet, but I'll keep you posted. And there are more, lots more, to come.
