Our blackberry harvest is in full swing now. We’ve had some very hot days and when that happens, the blackberries ripen very quickly. There are still a lot of red ones, but I’m picking a basket of ripe ones every other day.
We can’t eat them fast enough because we’re also picking raspberries and strawberries, so I freeze them. I think about the black smoothies, blackberry crisps, and other treats we’ll be able to eat in December when fresh, local, organic berries are not available.
