Saskatoon Alert

If you are in Central Alberta pick now.  This is the  week and this is the year.  The last two years were dismal berry years, in our vicinity.

Last year we had a late snow storm just as the bushes were in full bloom and that more or less nixed it.  This year the berries are a trifle late due to the cold spring.  However they are definitely worth the effort.

The last berry abundant summer was three years ago, my father’s last, and he and I made the most of it. This morning, wading through dew-drenched waist high grass to reach laden bushes, I just wanted to tell him, “Dad, you can strip by the handfuls here.”
