When I was a kid, these berries may have ripened at different rates. You had strawberries for a week; juneberries for a week at the same time as blueberries, which could actually last into the fall in some places; raspberries coming at the tail end of the blueberries (lasting maybe a couple weeks); and blackberries ripening just after the raspberries.

Back then, summers lasted. From the frantic chants of "School's out, school's out, teacher let the monkeys out" on through the majestic blue-sky mornings when you stepped outside barefoot and felt the dew-damp grass between your toes, to the occasional ecstasy of a tree-snapping, duck-drowning rip-snorter of a thunderstorm, summer rolled on and on and on, a great comforting river of time, so long and so wide and so embracing that worries disappeared around the bend.
