We went out into the patch this morning and that little stinker has figured out that only the ripe ones taste good! I'm not sure how many berries she "picked", but I left with a 1/2 gallon of them, and drenched from sweat. The thorns weren't too bad - athough I did have to pull one out of my big toe. Maybe i'll have shoes on next time, instead of flip flops?
Thanks for following the blog, treangelsmother!
In gardening news, more squash and cucumbers will be picked today. It's really starting to come in, now. The first grean beans were picked a couple of days ago, but not enough for a meal yet.
I have fruit set on 7 watermelons (sugar bowl) right now, and any new vine growth will be pinched off. This will make the plants put all of their energy into fruit maturity, and not new growth. This wasn't done last year, and the melon sizes suffered from it.
I'll be making blackberry jam this evening, man I can't wait! I'll get some pictures of everything this weekend....
Take care, and happy gardening!
