Wild Blackberry Walk

In our neck of the woods, July is wild blackberry month. Over time, we’ve located several wild brambles growing along fence lines around our farm. I have to admit that harvesting is a tad difficult because of all the thorns, but well worth the effort. I wanted to share just a few pictures from our walk that day.

The big kids are busy picking berries. The three-year-old decided that thorns don’t make for much fun.
Beautiful, ripe blackberries are almost too hard to collect. Everyone wants to eat them before they hit the bucket. Sound familiar fans of Blueberries for Sal?
I couldn’t resist showing you the beauty of an uncut hayfield in July.

As hard as we tried, we never made it home with enough for jam or freezing. Oh well, the walk sure was yummy!
