It’s Berry Time!

1 July 2010

By Dave Wilsey, UMN Extension

Boozhoo! The waxing of the Aabita niibino giizis reminds us all that it is once again the time fro mawinzowin, harvesting berries. By this time we should be seeing or have already seen the inviting red fruits of the ode’iminan, or wild strawberry. Soon to fruit will be the miskominag (raspberries) and miinamiin (blueberries). Sometimes overlooked are the delicate odatagaagomin (thimbleberries) and abundant gozigwaakominag (juneberries, aka service berry and saskatoon). Join the birds, bears, and other creatures in this seasonal feast! And don’t forget: fresh berries can be frozen and enjoyed all winter.
