Small Fruits

The berries are in.  Yesterday we picked the first blueberries, and the first currant.  Noah ate three of the four blueberries, and I had to restrain him from picking off the green ones and gobbling those, too.  I saved the currant for myself - it was sweet and tart and broke open under my teeth with a little pop. 

Strawberries are wonderful this year - about a quart a day, now.  Yesterday I made strawberry ice cream for a Memorial Day get together yesterday, and another guest brought serviceberries he had gleaned, and they were wonderful together.
