    Gems

    As a child I was astonished that nature provided something more tasty even than strawberries just for free.  That is, provided the toll paid to the thorns. Till this day I am amazed and if time permits I go out to pick them and make jam to turn breakfast in the...

    Maggots In 'em!

    Once they're fairly ripe they get little tiny maggots in 'em you can barely see. Pick 'em while they're a bit hard. Or eat maggots, they're only protein.

    Blackberries

    I feel I must post this word of caution to all you Blackberry lovers. BEWARE. During the 1940s war years, families used to get together and go out Blackberrying. Of course, kids being kids, we used to eat more than we saved. It was during one of these trips, everyone was enjoying...

    The Berkeley Hills

    Back when I lived in Berkeley, I used to love hiking up in the hills. From my years as a boy scout, I knew enough about wild plants to identify the choice edibles among the native flora. On the north facing slopes where there is enough water, the blackberries really do well...

    Used to Just Like Them

    I used to just like them, now a friend has given me a new understanding of this wonderful berry.   I will now think of this person every time I eat them, along with all the other berries.
