I once read in a farmer’s almanac that heavily-laden berry bushes foretell a harsh winter.
It was either a farmer’s almanac or an old wives’ tale.
But some fairly folksy saying that — my entire life — I have used as a country crystal ball for forecasting the coming cold and snow. Or lack thereof.
It depends on the berries.
But here is what I would like to know.
When it comes to “heavily laden” . . .
. . . how do you know?
