I love that I can have
Huckleberry Pancakes in March.
Some may call it a waste of time,
others may call it "fruit-hoarding",
but to me and my friend Mary, we simply call it
"stocking up for the winter months".
Because to us, the summer is fruit picking time!
So whether we are climbing up a mountain
and venturing into 'Bear Territory"
to gather Huckleberries...
Tromping through an abandoned apple field
with ladders and baskets in hand...
Or praying that the cherries we picked
from one of the many Cherry Orchards here
don't have worms in them...
Summer-time is "fruit-hoarding" time
and in the winter, it's glorious!
