I love the woods at the end of my street. last year I picked 11 lbs of blackberries there, resulting in blackberry jam, pie, and many smoothies. today I picked about 4 lbs- they're just starting to come in in patches. by the looks of things, in the next week or so there will be a bumper crop, and i will resume my obsession with picking in the evening. my arms are already scraped to shit. i love it!
