I grow my own thornless blackberries and red raspberries. Had to put metal fence around them for rabbit control and now nylon netting for the birds. Geez, this is getting expensive to grow your own! lol. My blackberries are still about a week or two away from ripening.

I’ve picked a little over a gallon from a patch close to my house.  First time in a few years for me.  We used to pick black rasberries by the gallons, but the patches I picked for years dried up for whatever reason and I hadn’t been finding them.  I noticed this patch putting on berries, and have been fighting daddy long leg spiders, mosquitoes, and now noticed the japanese beetles are moving in too.

I also grow my own blackberries, their not quite as good as the wild ones but so much easier to pick. I try to pick them every other day and let them get good and ripe, almost look like little balloons ready to bust and to pick a gallon in 15 minutes is so nice. Not many rasberries around here anymore either, see small patches but not enough to bother picking.

I grow and sell a lot of blackberries, black raspberries, and strawberries. This is the best year I have ever seen for wild black raspberries, I’ve picked about 12 gallons! The blackberries look loaded too. I just bottled some black raspberry wine that is wonderful.

Black raspberries are definitely in full swing. Don’t know if anyone likes mulberries but they are also very good. Really sweet and huge. Not much for pies and such but good in icecream and my favorite eating them right off the tree.

Black raspberries growing all around one of our favorite ponds!  Fishing with a belly ache and purple fingers is a good time!!

Our domestic patch just went into overdrive the last couple of days—looking forward to some jam.
