Huckleberries are ripening up early this year.

Huckleberries - wild blueberries - are ripening up, perhaps two weeks early this year. Many bushes on our land are full of berries, a welcome sight after two subpar years.

These berries are extremely high in antioxidants. Many creatures eat the berries, included two-footed ones like me! This year there appears to be enough berries for all.

Not all berries ripen at the same time, so the season of berries continues for several months. It's time to go foraging for one of the treats brought to us by Mother Nature.
