through the view finder with nicolle.
hello again friends, it’s nicolle here from sacred lotus photography. it’s almost berry season here in oregon and I have to admit it’s one of my favorite times of the year! from june through september, oregon’s willamette valley blushes with berries. red raspberries, black raspberries, marionberries, evergreen blackberries, boysenberries, blueberries, and loganberries! fertile, well drained soil, favorably timed spring rains, and summers that are warm in daytime and cold at night, produce berries that are sweet, plump, and happy.
each year my family and i go to a few local farms and pick buckets full of plump ripe berries. i do a lot of baking with them. i also like to freeze them and use them for smoothies! last year i wanted to make homemade organic strawberry jam but never got around to it. this year i’m gonna make it happen!
do any of you have a favorite berry recipe you would like to share? if so please leave it in the comments, i would love to try some new recipes!!
