Blackberries (dewberries?) are ripening. I picked about two pounds yesterday. For the thorns, I wore long pants, for the heat I wore a wet towel on my head. Blackberries don't all ripen at once.
Sand plums will be ready soon!
Sumacs are starting to bloom. They are good nectar source for bees, then the berries make a yummy tea high in vitamin C.
And the cat tails that made it into our pond are blooming for the first time. These are one of the highest density edible foods ever!
