Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Blackberries grow EVERYWHERE—by the sides of roads and rivers—in Western Washington. I’m sure Grandma Schmidt must have taken advantage of the wild abundance—plump black berries on tall tangled vines--to treat my mom and her siblings. When they were “on,” my sister, Donna, and I would go picking down by Green River in hopes mom would make a cobbler when we got home. The nice thing about cobblers is they feed quite a few, are so-o-o easy to make, and taste so great. Donna was the ice cream kid in our house. She absolutely loved it. And of course, hot blackberry cobbler is even better with vanilla ice cream melting on top. A generation later my own son, Christopher, and his wife, Amy, lived in Seattle during graduate school and kept up a tradition they were probably unaware of, going blackberry picking, too, though I think they may have made jam.
