Berry season

It's now the time of year when a walk in the woods is seldom far from a juicy snack. Among the delicacies coming into season at Discovery Park:


Red huckleberry

Trailing blackberry (my favorite)

Indian plum, a fruit I like more and more. It tastes kind of like a cucumbery watermelon, but sweet, and so purple it stains your fingers.

Red elderberries. I've never tried these. You have to cook them before you eat them. Otherwise they cause nausea.

Black raspberry. These are edible, though I've never tried them. Someone likes them, though.
