Ate my first huckleberry today.

In reviewing some posts from past years, it seems like this year is much like last year with respect to the weather and subsequent spring berry harvest. The hot spell followed by cool weather and lots of rain this week is plumping up the huckleberries. Some bushes are already producing, and others are well on their way.

Salmonberries are hanging on too, and there seems to be more this year than last year even, and they are lasting longer. Some bushes are just coming into their primes now, while in previous years, they're near done by now.

I might get a chance to check the raspberry patches this weekend. Weather is supposed to be sunny and hot, so that will bring the berries along even more.
