Althouse,

I had considered quoting what you used here as the title in the previous purple berry thread. Well, snooze you lose.

They're yours, not hours.

Not Goji berries. Not Acai. Sloe?

How do you keep birds from eating them? We never get a chance to eat the serviceberries in our yard.

Ann Althouse said...

This is the first year the birds didn't get them all before they ripened. It might be that the tree is larger and has more berries, but it might be that a very aggressively territorial robin is keeping other birds away.

Did you make anything interesting with them? I was talking to someone (about the same time posted this) who had harvested some and was getting set to make scones.
