Berry delicious...

Been a good year for Berrys
Old folks this way predicted such with the low ammount of snow we had, saying it was gonna be great for Berrys, and so it is....
Spent a few days around the house, doing this and that, and a few days back I stumbled apon 1 ripe 'Ukpk' also known as Salmon Berrys.
They look alot like Salmon roe I guess.....
Three days ago was a 7 gallon day, yeasterday 9, today she gave away what she had to spare to an elder brother and the kids gave some to friends who were leaving town.

Freezer ready bags are the way to go, as these women fill their backpacks, and keep the mess less.
Now to top off buckets with 'em and bury the buckets inna cold celler, after a solid freezing inturn , in the freezer.......

Anyway, as we usually reside by the coast in summer it was a plaeasnt suprize to get them a almost two weeks earlier than were used too, and to boot, all this rain and the sun dipping below the horizon again, its truly berry time.

Something we dont get on teh coast, Raspberrys
My Singsong Carol, the Berry patch devastator.

Now were gonna have meat problems. The wife aint got enough freezer room, so the dry stuff as wella s the raw stff is comming out to be dryed up and forgotten~~LOL!!~~That box of Blubber has to be eaten soon, too........
I , for one need fresh meat, so I guess were gonna have to hunt somemore......

Mixed berrys the Little Ones Picked
Our diet will be happy with purple foods, full of vitamin C as well as some fibers and other particals our bodys burn, damn good, if I say so myself.
They are great tea and desserts as well as getting added to other stuff and garnishing foodsall winter, I like 'em plain.
Organic I think?
Hey! You notice I have a camera??Pulled it out today! ~~LOL!!~~ A big old bulky thing with crappy megapixless, but itll due till I get another. That last Kodak was pricey, so who knows......

Trapesing about and Salmon


How are ya?
Well, Ive been a trapesing about, though I am now cameraless once again, seems I left it somewhere, so I cant blame anyone but myself~~LOL!!~~ I do have a few things captured on a friends phone camera, but I gotta figure how to get 'em on the computer. These are old.

Went "Coasting" (actually alotta walking)and pulled up a bunch of bones to dry and retrive later this summer. Some Mammoth ivory, but nothing major as the snow was still a clinging to most of the frozen mud.
Thats changing daily and were destined to go back again, as well Caribou hunting has been good too, but yet we are outr for much more :D

The Salmon Berries are ripening, and the wife came home with a bunch last night, though it was "Hunting" not picking as the vvast majority are not yet ripe. Soon it'll be Blue berries too.

Salmon have showed up and were putting out out net tonight as they seem to be on everyones mind for fresh food.

My minds on August with Muskox season, Moose season, Caribou are prime for pelts and dry meats as well as time to move my firewoods home............

well, Hopefully I'll get some picts next time, but I will keep a writing a bit .
