Picked the first of thousands yet to ripen. Enough to freeze 2 quarts and still had enough to put a handful on a bowl of bran flakes.
     Both my wife and I have our own bushes. Mine are some bushes in old uncared-for patch planted by my Mom and Dad years ago. Poison Ivy has about taken it over. Lucky me I ain't allergic. Wife is so we now have his and hers blueberry bushes.
     Good thing the Strawberrys are done. Now it's Blueberrys that need picking everyday along with everything else we grow to feed ourselves and sell for seed and fertilizer money
     Peppers, Squash and Cukes are coming on strong. No Tomatoes yet.

Wife got the rifle out to try to kill the BIG old boar hog that has been rootin up the front lawn.  This was while I was gathering Catalpa Worms.  This pig was a easy shot if wife slipped out the back door and sneaked around to the shootin rest at the front corner if the house.  By the time she got to where she could see where he was, he was GONE.
    One of these days , KahPow.  That old boar will be history.

My Grand daughter, 4 now, picks blue berries.  She picks them up and squeezes them ever so gently, if they are soft she puts them back, if they are firm she eats them! Big smile

We’re picking blackberries nightly. Had some last night on homemade vanilla ice cream. We have 3 blueberry plants one year old. They look good but no berries.

     I see some blackberries blooming around here and elderberries. Both are difficult to find, at least close to us. All the fence rows and pastures are gone. Used to be tons of them growing wild 50 years ago. Mom would send us kids out with buckets and she made elderberry jelly and pies. Good stuff. There were times we came back with 2-3 12 qt. buckets of blackberries.
