    Do you have my address for shipping some of that jam?
    My little patch of berries are coming along slowly but should be good if the birds don't get them first.

    My wife use to do cobblers and cream pies out of them. I think my ground has got too many pine needles down now and production is low. Gotta get my neighbor to help me with a controlled burn this next winter.

    What is the difference between a blackberry and a blackcap?

    Nice mess of Blackberries Jerry!!!

    SWEET !!

    Pops, I believe a Blackcap is a type of black raspberry. It is hollow inside when picked, like a red raspberry.

    The Wild Blackberries around here have a hard core inside them.

  13. The only ones I get are wild ones and they are tart as hell. The birds love em though.

    I never saw a Blackberry tree---Not saying there is no such thing, but are you sure it's not a Mulberry tree?

    Blackberries around here grow on vine type sticker bush type areas.

    A real Farmer you are now Jerry. Great load of blackberries you have there. I'm sure I will see some of the goods later in the year.

    Mark this thread is two years old. I'm sad to say I didn't get any blackberries this year but on a positive note I have made up my mind I will be planting some in the future I have it on the list of to do's the only problem is that list is very long [​IMG]
