Blackberry Season

Hi My People!   I have been away for a few days due to a nasty summer cold, but I am baaaaacck!

It is blackberry season here and the bushes in my back yard have been going gangbusters.



Here's one, ready for his closeup. 



I have been foisting them off on friends and neighbors as fast as I can.


I've also been freezing them for use in smoothies, etc, later.  



I love blackberry season!

I used to pick blackberries with my mom - longsleeved shirts, mosquito repellant, and an old ice cream bucket. They were delicious!! and almost worth the thorny scratches suffered to get them. :-)

I am hoping we will have a good berry season this year. BUT so do my birds and squirrels!!

We are almost a month away from ANY kind of berry here. Sheesh. I want to live in CA.

Oh, you are so fortunate to have blackberries in your backyard! Fond memories were made picking blackberries with my Grandmother. Thanks for conjuring that up with your post! :)

Ann said...

yum on the blackberries. I need my own bush. I don't know about where you are but in these parts those little babies are expensive

Hilary said...

Oh yum! I think you owe me a new keyboard due to excessive drooling.

It's my turn to be jealous now. We have one blackberry bush, which we have to cover in netting to get anything before the birds do, and even then it's only a small handful at a time. I hope my jealousy makes yours taste twice as sweet!

Lin said...

Oh....those would be lovely on some vanilla ice cream!

Looking great Betty. We have a blackberry bush and hope to see the same fruity results in a few weeks. Enjoy!
