Who Knows These Berries

So, this morning we took the camera and headed to the berries spot on our ravine walkway and now I need your help.

Jocelyn? anyone?  do you know these berries?

Lovely little berries on the bush

At first we had this:

At first we didn't fine many ripe ones

At first we didn't find many ripe ones

But as we went along the walkway and paid close attention to both sides, we found:

What do you think of our plate?

and also this:

Berales are all over the ravine these days

Berales* are all over the ravine these days

We ended up with this:

Quite a few berries and on such lovely plates!

Quite a few berries and on such lovely plates!

There are quite a few red ones still on the bushes out there. The question of course is who will get to them first when they are all ripe and ready to eat. Please cross your fingers for us when you are not knitting!

And the no photos knitting continues, I am almost at the toes of the first sock of the second pair! they sure go fast with a heavier yarn.

* Berale – a nickname of a snail in Hebrew, based on a children book.

    Hmm, I don’t think I’m going to be a lot of help here — they don’t look quite like our blackberries down here, which makes me think you may be right about the raspberry guess… They certainly look yummy, though! Now I’m wondering where I can find wild blackberries around here :) (P.S. Glad you didn’t eat the snail…)

    They look just like our wild blackberries! enjoy eating them raw (heavenly with cream!) or you can make jam if you can get enough

    those are black raspberries, aka blackcaps. the finger lakes region of new york is covered with them. you know they’re ripe when they’re completely black and they come off with little provocation.

    They look a lot like wild blackberries to me! The red ones are still unripe and the plants can be thorny. Generally the thornier the plant, the better the berry… lol. You can also plant some “domestic” kind with no thorns. The berries are bigger and juicier, but I still think the wild one have more taste. Blackberry jelly is delicious! Try and make some.
