I wish this growing season had been kinder to our lingonberries.
I left them on the plants for as long as I dared...
but finally decided to harvest them before they fell off, rotted, were eaten
or we got a really hard freeze...
it takes awhile to pick them as they are so small.
A few had already gone soft and bad,
some were still not fully ripe,
but still there are quite a few that are ripe.
Plan: perhaps a lingonberry whip or small pie.
Hope: that the 2012 harvest will be a better one-
and more importantly,
for the PNW lingonberry farmers.
How's your Thanksgiving preparations going?
One week to go!
Note: Balsgard lingonberries.
