Last year the prickly pear cactus on my trails had lots of fruit and my person decided to get brave and pick some and make things that were good to eat.
This year the prickly pear only had a few puny flowers so I don’t think there’s going to be much fruit.
But the Manzanita bushes are loaded with berries.
And my person decided she was going to experiment with those this year.
Of course she didn’t ask me first. Most of those berries are really little and it took a long time to pick enough to do anything with.
Hey person, all the best berries are in here.
I tried to help, but my person told me to sit and be quiet.
We picked up a hitchhiker while my person was picking.
Finally my person was ready to head home.
I got accused of getting her backpack wet.
I’m always getting blamed for things and this time I couldn’t even put the blame on Scratchy.
It turned out my person had a leaky water bottle.
Whew! Off the hook that time.
When we got home I still had to sit and be quiet. My person wasn’t finished with those berries.
Finally, the finished product.
I may have gotten off the hook for getting my person’s backpack wet, but I sure hope I don’t get accused of watering the inside of that jar.
