Our local hill has at present a huge crop of unripe wimberries, whinberries, bilberries, blueberries or whatever variety or name you use.

I remember watching in Norway as folk used special fork-scoops with curved tines of bent wire, efficiently to denude a whole sprig of berries with one sweep.

In Scandinavia you have few people and many hillsides of berries; here we have many people and few such hillsides. Fortunately our population do not seem as yet to have invented the berry-scooping tool, and the hard work of collection deters all but the determined. I am sure those frequenting this forum will have an eye to sustainability.

I love the berries raw, but my wife's pies and tarts and jam are delicious.

Dark clothing is essential for the picker. However dark the outerwear, underwear will be purple-stained after sitting on the hill among the berries.

Happy hunting and picking!

Been out in the woods for some hours today.

Hope it's not a matter of survival as it has been over here, but if it is, I'm sure you are the fittest

Yes, it's hard work for anybody's back, but when it comes to non industrial picking, there is a rule:

If you don't take part in the picking, you will not have any to eat. In the practical world that means that you and your family/friends always eat blueberries standing up because of the inevitable aching back

From a school paper: "The human body consists of a long bone. Luckily that bone kan be folded in the middle. Otherwise humans would have to sit in a standing position"

Compare with Raging Roland Roomsfield

Thank you, hercules. The dog is a reindeer herder and hunter from Northern Scandinavia, several thousand years old breed.

The name of the breed is Soumalainen Lapinkoira, in Swedish Finsk Lapphund. In English Finnish Laphund. Laps or Sámi are the people that has resided way up north as the first habitants

It's their working dog
