Blackberries...,

Our property has two berry patches - "black cap" raspberries and true blackberries.
This year we harvested the raspberries for about three weeks in July.
It was a pretty good crop.

The blackberries started coming in at the beginning of August and were very abundant.
[Which semi makes up for the "not hot enough" lousy tomato year.]
During August we brought in at least five gallons, ate some, gave some away, and froze a lot.
[Frozen blackberries are a nice substitute for ice cubes in a Margareta.]
I thought we were done a week ago, but I wandered toward the patch today and still found about a pint of freshly ripened ones.
They'll probably make it into pancakes for tomorrow morning's breakfast.
