Autumn is the berry and mushroom season, and our freezer is now full with blueberries and cantarelles. Our raspberry bush survived last winter and, although it is not very big yet, we got a good harvest of juicy tasty berries from it. We also have a red gooseberry plant, but they take a bit longer to ripen. It is a good berry year, we have picked both cloudberries, raspberries, blueberries and stone bramble; the mushrooms had a late start, probably because of the dry summer, but during our last cantarelle trip a few weeks ago we did find quite a few mushrooms so it could become a reasonable mushroom year as well.
