Here’s what we didn’t do this summer: post much to our blog. Our office staff was so busy with the web project that we neglected to share news from the farms and the kitchen, where summer fruit was plentiful and carefully tended to. We did manage to capture much of the work of summer in photos, so we thought we’d use this as an opportunity to introduce a new SpoonBlog feature: Wordless Wednesday, a weekly image-based post. This week, Wordless Wednesday takes the form of a photographic retrospective (also, it clearly involves words), but look for new truly Wordless Wednesday posts every week in addition to our regular posting.

Last week, a berry-stained gentleman wandered into the American Spoon store in Petoskey. He’d picked some wild blackberries in response to our ad and wasn’t quite sure where to take them. This happens fairly often during the month or so that it takes summer to fade into fall, when blackberries grow like crazy in dense thorn-studded thickets along roadsides and abandoned railroad tracks, at the edges of fields and trails, in state parks and vacant lots, and in all sorts of wild and woodsy places.
