I just had my first wild blackberries of the year (growing along the back fence at work). Looks like it's going to be a banner year.

No sh!t about the snakes. I almost got popped by a copperhead last year running through the patch. Caught a Texas rat snake crawling through the office yesterday :omg: . Have no idea how that little bastard got in, but he scared the crap out of our skincare lady. Testament to them coming out of hibernation, I guess - but then again, it's been in the 80's here for awhile, so I'm sure they're all out by now.

Gotta respect a man or woman that picks their own fruit instead of buying it at the store.

I just wish we had more fruiting trees/bushes growing wild around here. We get pecans and there are some figs in early summer, though. That's a bonus.

Last year, I picked enough blackberries to freeze about 20 quarts, AFTER eating an insane amount of them every day. Katrina beat them up pretty bad, but they look like they're coming back nicely, just in time for the season!

blackberries are quality, i remember the days when me nan would take me and my sister out picking blackberries off the brambles.

she makes a beast blackberry crumble, not sure if you have that in the states.

yea, over here it's called cobbler, and it's an absolute staple here in the South.
