Now I'm hungry!

Usually enough here to pick a good batch or two. Not this year. Too dry.

Ours are just now coming in. Don't normally pick, but this year I plan to enjoy them.

I like Blackberry Dumpling a lot better than Cobbler. A country boy can survive

Red raspberries are just starting here got about two gallons so far some for cobbler, but most will be made into wine.

My wife is the wine drinker I like them for just about any type of baked dish. It looks like we are going to have a real good crop this year.

Yep having our second cobbler tonight. Made one last week after picking berries with an army buddy and the wives. Best berry crop in years here in Oklahoma. Finally had a rainy summer.

I used to pick a 5 gallon bucket of them for a buck when I was a kid. They are pretty plentiful within 80 miles of the coast or so. If that is a blacktail, it is a dandy! But it looks like one.

Just got HAMMERED by a bad hatch of June Bugs, and lost all the Elberta Peaches, a lot of Apples, and some ground on my Thornless Blackberry Picking. They're mostly iradescent green mulch now (the June Bugs), and my new stands of TBBs are still setting fresh blossom.

Folks LIKE em', and are paying $4.00 a Pint in the "You Pick" mode,.....I weigh their containers in, they pick, I weigh em' out. wink

Sellin' em' to the local Food Co-op, ....picking, packing, deliveries, staff that had no idea about what their mgr had made for a deal, etc. were a PITA.

I'll stick with You Pick, and select deliveries to select patrons, from here on out.

Gonna' make some wine for my mind, too.

We have Himalaya Berries here, had one Vanilla Cake Cobbler a couple weeks back, just came in and showered from picking across the street. They are a little slow so far, but I am promised a cobbler when we get back from our next salmon trip.

Picked these on my place a couple of weeks ago- they ended up in a delicious cobbler!

Been picking a lot the last month. Have a fence row along one side of our drive that I never clear leaving it for quail. It's covered every year and easy to get to just walking down the drive. It gets some fertilizer from the guy that farms our field beside it so they grow big and fast. Makes for an enjoyable stroll to the mailbox!

I picked and ate them throughout the day while running the sawmill. This year's crop rivals that of last year, which was our best ever. My wife makes a killer blackberry cobbler!!!!!
