It’s now free fruit season

2 Aug

Free fruit season has arrived here in Oslo. The forest is full of raspberries, blueberries, mountain cranberries and gooseberries. Walking in the forest no longer counts as healthy exercise at this time of the year. I don’t make any progress and get stuck stuffing my face with delicious, sugary fruit. The rotten weather this year seems to have taken a slight toll, but everything’s relative. The raspberries are sweet but less plentiful compared to last year. The blueberry bushes also have fewer berries but the ones you find are plump full of juice from all the rain. Norwegians rarely pick raspberries so at least there’s not much competition. They’ll occasionally go after the blueberries but the proper technique consists of using a special comb. That’s on my shopping list.
