Back in the day when I was young, I'm not a kid anymore

I used to pick wild black raspberries because they grew all around my house.  I grew out of it for a while but now that I'm not a kid anymore, I realize that the hunter/gatherer lifestyle is pretty sweet.  So today, I wish you a happy beginning to the black raspberry season.  For those aspiring gatherers out there, the two weeks leading up to the 4th of July are typically the best to find ripe black raspberries in Western Pennsylvania.
