For the last huckleberry picking of the season (and incidentally, on the hottest day of the week), I had to up the ante a bit to get a good working crew. Not only was there swimming, but the promise of whole wheat pancakes with blueberry syrup sauce made on the grill. That sealed the deal.
Since I never got out to go strawberry picking this spring ( the u-pick prices were terrible this year!) and my own plants didn't fare well, my hope was to have a few extra huckleberries set up for winter to make up for it. We wound up, when all is said and done, to have 22.25 pounds under our belt....which for HUCKLEBERRIES (a much smaller berry than blueberries), is pretty impressive evenifIdosaysomyself.
