Let's go into the woods to see how the wild black berries are coming along...
Wild blackberries grow naturally in our woods. They take care of themselves and produce year after year for our pleasure. Notice the size of these wild blackberries - much different from the large 'perfectly' shaped cultivated ones that you buy from the grocery store.
The ones that get more sunlight ripen faster than the ones that are in the thicket of the woods.
During these next few weeks, we will go berry picking at least once a week, picking the ripe black ones as they are available.
When I was a little girl I remember berry picking at my Grandparents, but I usually ate more than I would have in my container. Now I understand the importance of saving them to make a delicious cobbler!
