Yesterday was interesting, I went hiking and found fields of black berries. It is almost that time of year when they are ripe but against my better judgement I decided to eat about 6 handfuls of black raspberries berries. The first three handfuls were really sweet, but the last 3 were rather bitter, this didn't sit with my stomach at all. I also didn't realize that red ants were eating the black berries and one bit my lip as I bit into it. Needless to say you should wait until the black berries are ripe and make sure there aren't ants on them.
