Good Ol' Summertime


Greetings from the hills.

Goodman has a new work schedule, a completely crazy one and it has us wondering what day it is every. single. day. so my posts and visits to other blogs may be sporadic until his schedule changes.

We've picked a couple gallons of blackberries so far.  They're plump and sweet.


 Our favorite way to enjoy them is in a cobbler.

I pile them high and add butter..

Then sprinkle on flour and sugar.

Make a crust ...

Pop it on top the berries and bake...

Now this, this is summer.

I hope some foraged blackberries find their way into your summer, too.

  2. Boy! Does that ever look wonderful! Hopefully we'll get some blackberries this year. We had to cut the bushes way back after the winter. Hope your schedule gets worked out!

  3. Oh, my, what beautiful blackberries. I can just taste the cobbler. Our blackberries are very small this year. I hope you are enjoying your summer and had a great 4th of July!

  6. Crazy schedules can be tricky to keep a sensible daily routine. Hold on there! :-)

    Yummmm! You got me salivating non-stop staring at the screen. They look delicious! We don't have blackberries in our climate and buying a small box of them can cost me half of my savings. I wish I could stop by to try some. ;-)

    We're eduring a 15 days long heat wave and can't remember how it was living below 100F. There must be nicer at the foothills. Enjoy your summer!

    1. We've had to pick between rains, but I think that's over now. It's supposed to be really hot the rest of the week.

  8. That looks so delicious! Blackberry pie reminds me so much of my Grandpa. When asked what his favorite pie was he would always say, "More pie!" He could make a mean blackberry pie, I'll tell you. Hope you're having a great summer!

  9. Your post makes me very hungry. I like black berries but the ones I find in stores down here are usually quite tart. Probably picked before they should have and then shipped. Have a great week.

  10. Oh, my, Toni! I have been craving a camping trip and your blackberry cobbler takes me back a couple of decades when I picked them wild in the Sierras and made jam for the winter while tent camping with an old wood fired stove. I love your posts. Hopefully you will get used to your hubby's new schedule soon.

  15. I can't decide what I like more, the freshly-picked blackberries or the cobbler. Life is always testing me with difficult choices :-)

  20. Oops, I may have just salivated on my computer just a little. Those blackberries (and the cobbler) look scrumptious. Ours are still tiny dots on the bramble plants, so you're well ahead of us. Enjoy. :-)
