Last week was a difficult week. I know everyone has those. The good news is, the huckleberries are ripe. You have to look in the right places, but don’t be fooled by those who say it’s too dry or too cold or there’s not enough moisture. Valor and I picked a gallon on Friday, from Fish Creek all the way up past Four Corners in a few different spots. They are a little dry, but they’re good.

Huckleberries are ripe outside of Grangeville at Fish Creek and up into Four Corners and Adams Camp. Rumor has it they are also ready along the Lochsa and Selway. In addition, blackberries are ripening in Orofino and Kooskia.
