Huckleberries, wild blueberries, are prized by pretty much everyone. Birds love the berries, as do four-legged animals like Deer. Two-legged animals - humans - love them too. This spring the bushes are absolutely load with beautiful white blossoms - they obviously loved all the rain we received this winter. Hall Kelley recently photographed one branch, saying the blossoms looked like a string of pearls.
If you note which bushes are laden, it's easier to find the ripe berries beginning in August. The berries are either dark blue or black. Here is a photo of mine showing the first huckleberries ripening. The green ones will continue to ripen through September, October and even November.
Thanks to Hall for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
