The blackberry season is winding down rapidly here, I only got about a pint this evening and there aren't many more on the canes. My season here is also winding down, about 4 months late. I have managed to get the yard looking fairly respectable, and the neighbor's adult son is going to mow it once in a while so it doesn't look completely abandoned while I'm gone. In return they got the large chain link dog kennel and all the organic raspberries they can pick between now and frost. I'll settle up with him when I get back if I owe him more.I've got a day or two of sorting and packing the camper, then finally I'll head north. I'm still trying to work out a good system for filtering water into the camper holding tank and I'm not sure I"ll get that sorted out before I leave. I may just pack up the homemade Berkey style filter and hope the fragile candles survive bouncing down the highway.
