It was another great year for our blackberries: We started picking on July 11, at least two weeks earlier than in 2014, and we stopped picking on August 10th – when we stopped tallying. There are still stray berries out in the patch for breakfast cereal or pancakes.
Nearly a whole month of picking! (No wonder I did not find time to update our blog).
The “official” grand total of picked blackberries for 2015 was 2018.36 lbs. Of this, we froze 838.36 lbs, and 1190 lbs of berries were picked into pint and quart boxes.
