Ernie, thanks for following!
I so need to move in! you have no idea how many blackberries I go through in a week!
That's funny....I picked a cup full for my momma yesterday, she always gets the first ones each year! We only use them for homemade syrup, homemade jam, and cobbler.
Wow, what variety are those, they're huge? Wild ones here are exclusively Himalayan. And do yours have thorns? I wouldn't dream of handling mine like that, I'd come away bloody, hehe. I normally pick with one heavy leather glove for handling branches and one with a latex glove under a ruberized garden glove for picking. Then I wear heavy jeans and a junky gortex coat. Thank goodness ours don't mature until near fall or it'd be too hot to pick, hehe.I'd say pick what you got or the birds will get them. Glad you did and gave them to your mom. Good son you are!I agree that's what it's all about. I had a PB&J sandwich today with last year's blackberry jelly, YUM!You need help, is it too late to volunteer? hehe.Thanks for sharing.
Heck I'd be in there picking now :> Yum.
You should try mixing them into a home made shake, great for fiber and energy apparently. I do tend to snack on a few before they make it to the blender though!
I checked the wild berry patch at my local park on Monday, and even though it is not as spectacular as your patch, the berries are at just about the same stage of ripeness. I picked about a cup to bring home, but I think that Thursday or Friday there will be a lot more. My mom's in Oklahoma, so I couldn't share with her (I'm in Georgia), but I left them out on the counter, and they disappeared pretty quickly.It always seems weird to me that I am the only one out picking those berries. Glad to know that you and other people out here in electron-land are picking them, too!Thanks for the great video!Amy gwh
That looks just like the patch in the vacant lot around here. I'm thinking to get in there, myself and pick some.
Mmm...I don't know if those berries would have hung around long enought to make it on camera if I was in charge. What a patch! I would also be interested in knowing the variety and how mature they are.
