Hard to hide that we've been picking blueberries today...
The weather has change and it's a bit chilly with only 10 C these days. The air hasn't got that sharp, crisp smell of fall yet, but I guess it's just around the corner... I look forward to it though as it's my favourite season :) It's great to be out in the forest without all the flies
The forest was full of blueberries, and I came over a path were they was big :)
We picked black crowberries to. I plan to make "saft" from it. It's a juice you mix with water.
No I need to find the energy to clean all the berries so I can start to make "saft" and perhaps some jam tomorrow. I'll freeze the biggest blueberries as they are so we can make pai from it :)
We also came across some indians in the forest :) I think they were hunting bears and wolves.
The next berry to pick is lingonberries. But they need a few weeks before they are ripe.
