A gallon of blackberries every day. That is todays crop. It's interesting that the flash makes them look somewhat red, because they aren't in natural light. I am picking blackberries every afternoon during the week and morning and evening on the week-ends. Do you want some blackberries? I have this compulsion to pick as many as I can. I do let the birds have the ones that are in the middle of the thicket and the ones too high to reach, but if I can reach them, I will pick them. I have to spray my arms, neck and legs with bug repellent, because they are swarming out there. It is hot, hot, and more hot. Why can't they ripen in October?
