Took my son Daniel and the hounds for a little trek today in the East Texas Timber. We did'nt take any food with us but we found a nice snack at Tonkawa Creek! A Blackberry Vine and a Grape Vine appear to have grown together at the head of the creek and we feasted on the Blackberries that were ripe. We marked the spot and we will go back later when the grapes are ripe. I would like to attempt making a Wild Blackberry Fruit Leather as posted here by Laplander: http://naturallore.wordpress.com/2009/08/23/fruit-leather/. We had to share the Blackberry Bush with what looked like a Monarch Caterpillar. He was getting quite fat off that bush.... We will check back on him later when we gather berries for the Fruit Leather.
