Wild Blackberries

wild blackberries

Remember these?
Those guesses were correct--they are wild blackberries and they are now beginning to ripen. I had my first handful this morning. They are pretty tart, but not unpleasantly so. I don't think we'll have enough to do any preserving this year, so we'll eat them fresh, on top of pancakes, or maybe with shortcake or in muffins.

Riker loves raw fruit and vegetables. Oranges, carrots, green beans--he'll try pretty much anything you're willing to hand over. He follows me up and down the fence line begging for berries, so I taught him to pick his own this morning. He caught on really quickly and grabbed several of his own as I was picking mine. I hope I don't regret it...
