In Season: Blackberries

It was a few months ago that it was obvious that we were going to get alot of blackberries, but of course a gardener doesn't know exactly how many until late summer. The early ones are riping now, but the big crop will come in another month or two. Obviously, I took pictures of the ones ready to pick.

Kelly-Anne,

I honestly never thought about making jam with my berries. We've always eaten them freshly picked. However with the amount it looks like we're going to get, my mom and sisters just might have to make some jam! :)
