Peak of the black raspberry season, picked nearly a gallon out of the patch here in the past hour; 2 days ago I got only 1/3 as much and I didn't even cover the whole patch this time.

I enjoy berrying mostly because of the way a bramble that seemed picked clean can turn out to have more unpicked berries when seen from a different angle. Also, it's sort of like being in the zone of tetris after an hour or so; the hands proceed without concious direction and the mind is left free to drift or think about the big picture. More prickley than tetris though.

Anyway, yum.
