Berry Picking Time!

May 22, 2018

Tags: Blackberries


We put away seven quarts tonight to make sixteen for the season and were just getting warmed up. We had our second cobbler of the season last night. People ask me if Im growing one of the thornless varieties. Never! Im certain that fine flavor is proportional to blood loss and number of chigger bites. These are Brazos variety, native to the Blackland Prairie.
