Blackberry season is in full swing on the side of my house! I just love those little nuggets of juicy goodness!
I eat a couple but the bulk goes to make the most delicious Blackberry jam....So good!
A friend gave me a root in a bucket about 10 years ago...I was clueless about growing them and not really interested to say the least! LOL
They are the easiest berries to grow, I don't water them, I don't fertilize them, the only thin I do is give them a good trim in the fall (cut all the branches that bore fruits).
And I finally understand why farmer's market sell them at crazy prices....They are a pain to pick!
All those thorns! For 2 weeks in July I'm covered with scratches. Well, why don't you cover yourself, you might ask?
Not 15 minutes ago I got stuck in the bush...I had
a big branch full of thorns stuck in my hair! Ouch! And funny at the same time!
A couple of years ago I had a sweater and got stuck real deep in the blackberry bush....And couldn't get out and I kept calling for help...Yes it's embarrassing...LOL
In the Pyrex cup it's what I picked 20 min ago. I have to go back tomorrow morning otherwise the birds will eat them and crap purple all over my patio!
As for the Pyrex giveaway...well I'm so excited to have a new computer (It works like a charm) That I decided to spread the joy!
