A plethora of berries = Equals cobbler

As sad as I am to see the Black Raspberries go, as they are doing now (fleeting is the time they are ripe), at least that isn't the end of Summer Berries!
Yes, they are the best, but "Wine" or Red Raspberries are no ripe and there are SO many, and then there are Dew and Black Berries all over the mountain.

The Red Raspberries are sweet and amazing off the bush, but Wild Black Berries are quite tart, so they make great jam and cobbler!

I'm going to make some jam/jelly, too, but for now, here is a play by play of
"Cobbler Night"!



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
