On my bike ride this evening, everything seemed sere and toasted.   Maybe it is the drought and hot weather (90’s), but the scenery is burned up.   The black cherries are gone (so quickly it seems) and the beach plums are also gone.  Will we get grapes this year with all this heat?  I tried for elderberries at Beavertail last week, but Beavertail was toasted also.   Summer is burning out.


I have never seen so many berries as this year.  Peak mulberries right now.  The wineberries peaked about a week ago.  Our most robust blueberry still had a few last weekend.   Some elderberries are coming in but the birds pick them off immediatly
