Love those blackberries

There are many ways to enjoy blackberries. If you don’t feel like cooking, just eat them as you pick.


My own blackberries are only just now starting to get a blush on them, but some of my friends have been picking theirs.

When they get ripe, I never have any leftovers to pack away in the freezer. Partly because I don’t get all that many and partly because I can eat them nonstop.

My blackberry vine is thornless, and I really appreciate not having to get stabbed while picking or pruning. The variety is Chester, but there are several other types of thornless blackberry plants.
