Picked the first of my blackberries this morning Only had 6 ripe enough and only 3 madeit into the house. I would have been in trouble with Diane if I had not brought so in for her:)

We like the wild ones too, but ours were few and far between. Now blueberries, that another story. They are heavy on the bushes, and ripening quickly from the heat. We are racing the birds and squirrels to get them.

My Bride's thornless vines didn't like that late freeze in May. The don't have many on them. Raspberries didn't either.
We plan on pickin' the wild ones to supplement makin' perserves this weekend.. They seem to be plentiful and should be ready.

That's interesting because this was the best blackberry crop we've had in the last few years. Where in NC are you?

Always get chiggers picking the wild ones, no matter how careful I am.
