Mosaic Monday/Outdoor Wednesday. . .Head for the Hills!

It's that time of the year when we load up the kids
and head for the hills to pick 
 little purple berries!
The idea is to get more berries in your bucket than you
put in your mouth.
(sometimes this can be challenging)
This has been a family tradition for as long as I
can remember!
We started going with our parents, then we took our own kids. . .
Now we are taking the grand kids!
It's Huckleberry 'pickin' time here in SE Idaho!
It was so peaceful and beautiful in the mountains and the
berries were just calling out, "pick me, pick me"!
Such great therapy!
Join us for Mosaic Monday
and
Outdoor Wednesday

  3. Love the photos. Those look so good, you're making me hungry. Do you make pie out them or jam?

  4. Hi Pam, thanks for stopping by, we usually mix them with raspberries for jam and cheescake topping. Last night we had a raspberry/huckleberry smoothie, yum! They are pretty tart by all by themselves. Also good in hotcakes and syrup. . .I wish I could share with you, you'd probably be hooked!

  6. What a great family tradition! I have not had huckleberries in a long time. When my boys were little I used to take them blueberry picking. I think it was 50/50 ratio of bucket and mouth!

  9. I don't think I've ever tasted huckleberries... but I love all the others (blueberries, raspberries, etc), so I'm sure I would enjoy these too. What a great way to spend the day. Lovely mosaic.
