Riding feast season is over...

Riding here between July and September is good for the stomach. That's when the blackberries and huckleberries are ripe for the picking. There's nothing quite like stuffing your mug with blackberries during a ride. So sweet. We've even got some in the yard that are perfect for grazing on after a ride.

But alas, the season is over. The blackberries are shriveled and the huckleberries are gone. We've got (as does probably every other resident here) a nice tube of huckleberries in the freezer waiting for the next time we make pancakes. Huckleberries are fantastic in pancakes with genuine maple syrup and real butter.
