The August Pie
The August Pie is a blackberry pie, luscious and juicy. Usually I pick blackberries on Labor Day weekend; not a hard thing to do in Seattle where the bushes spring up in every untended yard, park, or roadside strip. The curtain sewing job was mine so that left the berry picking to the husband/daughter team. They whined about the thorny canes and the sticky, icky spiders and webs, but they sure were quick to eat blackberry pie ala mode!
