We’ve just picked our first haul of Blackberries. I have never seen a bush have ripe berries that are so uniform in their gigantic-ness!

There are hundreds of berries just waiting to plump and ripen. A couple days of cool and showers followed by a couple weeks of hot August weather sure would help the next batches along!

It could be a bumper crop!

Here is yesterdays timelapse.
