Photo Challenge: Fresh
It is fresh, wild fruit season in Minnesota’s north woods. Wild strawberries are just finishing (very small but with a ton of flavor – much more than tame ones). Wild raspberries are starting to turn red and the bushes will provide fruit for at least 3-4 weeks to come. The jackpot of berries in Minnesota, however, are the wild blueberries. Blueberry picking spots are protected by their finders like precious treasure .. these berries are the gold of the woods.
Today, I found a few wild blueberries just turning blue in the woods around my home … could anything be fresher than berries popped in your mouth right off the plant? Wild, totally natural, sweet, fruity, blue delicacy. Now, I am off to my “secret” blueberry treasure spot . . .
