Foraging for Blackberries


I was excited to see all the pretty white flowers in my front yard landscaping this spring.


I have given up on eradicating the brambles, and have been rewarded with berries. Last year I had roses and berries growing together and I embraced the beautiful chaos.What else can you do when a new baby demands attention?

That particular variety seems to be done(dewberries, maybe?) and others are ready elsewhere.


Keeping an eye out for other patches of flowers led me to some yummy blackberries this evening.


We took home about 6 pints, and probably about another pint was enjoyed super-fresh.

Right now my plan is to make some blackberry jam, enjoy some fresh, and maybe make a cobbler. Any other bright ideas?

If you are in North Florida, now is the time to look for these delicious berries!

    • Oh, I am so grateful! Blackberries are so pricey here, and I got 6 pints for free. I had a homemade roll with blackberry jam for breakfast-yummy!

  1. Nice haul! Our vines are producing still and I’ve reached the point where I can no longer eat enough to keep up. Time to do something with them!
