In a whole month of gray skies mixed with fog and rain, it is really hard to stay upbeat or optimistic. We hope to see the sun for more than a few minutes in the month of July. The blackberry blossoms seem to be the only thing around that thrive in this horrible weather. (Oh yeah, slugs and snails and mosquitos.) All we need is a little sun for a bumper crop of berries this year. This weather will pass…..eventually…..right? I’m planning on picking in August.
