Thread: Black berries

  1. #1

    Default Black berries

    We picked some black berries today. We got about six cups. The wife made a topping with the berries that we had on pound cake. If we can get at them we should be able to get more as they ripen.

    Same here. We just had our last freeze a week and a half ago!

    We usually don't get blackberries until 4th of July.

    Don't get tomatoes until August.

    Gardens here don't start cranking out food until about then and stop mid Sept, so it is hardly worth the effort.

    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    Here we had our first frost about half a month ago, so my blackberry plant (it's not really "just a plant", it's more of a bush) is "offline" rigth now, lol...
    But I still have some jam. My wife loves to make it, and I enjoy eating it, so it's a win-win situation.
    As a friend of mine once said, fishing, gardening, hunting and tinkering with your car aren't just nice hobbies, but also a nice way to save money when you need.
