The berries are ripe

I don't know if they're blackberries or black raspberries or what, but they're everywhere and we picked the first ripe ones yesterday evening. I molested them a bit with a whisk, then stirred in some sugar and put in frige. After dinner we had ice cream covered with the macerated berries. Mmmmm! If you can't fight 'em, eat 'em!

Sounds good ! I am waiting on my blueberries to ripen !

RE: The berries are ripe

Was down visiting family in Wetumpka 16-18 Apr. BIL said they'd already picked a couple gallons of blackberries. Heck, mine up here in the frigid northland were just blooming about then.
Don't know that I ever saw a raspberry, in the wild, in central AL when I was growing up roaming the fields and woods there.

RE: The berries are ripe

Yes, several people have told me they are blackberries. Still picking every few days, but slowing down. Had berry pancakes yesterday. Mmmm!

RE: The berries are ripe

sure they're not mullberries?
seems a little early for blackberries

RE: The berries are ripe

jny, I don't know where you are but here, just a few miles north of the FL border, the blackberries are done already. Figs will be ready soon.
