Blackberries in September!

Got 5 gallons of black berries up north over the weekend in just a couple of hours!!

Most are as big as my thumb! I could have picked 20 gallons or more if I had the time!

This is the first time ever I picked berries in SEPTEMBER!
Missed the season at home, so this was a real treat for me. Blackberry pie for dinner tonight!

Re: Blackberries in September!

Got a real hot spot for them myself. Acres upon acres. Was there yesterday and could have left with 20 # or more to fill a 5 gallon bucket! Skeeters were horrible though! We ate our fill and none made it home.

Re: Blackberries in September!

I just smashed the bags to break the berries like you would ice, and put them on cookie sheets so I can be ready for the pie thing this afternoon!

Can't wait!

I've found some blackberries here and there, but haven't found places to pick real quantities. What sort of sites do you look for out there?

Also, would appreciate tips for finding elderberries, if they are still in season.

This was in a 4 or 5 year old clear cut, right along logging roads.

Saw elderberries, but looked like the birds got most all of em.

Re: Blackberries in September!

The Black Berries that grow on my Buddy's farm have been strange this year...normally they are done about the beginning of August..not this year, there are still a few getting ripe and I been picking...just wish that I could get them cleared out a bit to make it easier and able to get the HUGE ones that grow in the middle of all the tangled stalks!

Don't Forget...

September is Fox Grape Picking Time...

I'll be heading out this week sometime to hit my Favorite Spots!

Making the pies right now! Crusts are rolled, berries measured, oven on pre-heat!

Re: Blackberries in September!

Well, I screwed up the first two pies. Mebbe they'll taste OK. Sugar, flour, berries, brown sugar... how bad could they be?
