I found these blackberries at the edge of the horse pasture across the street, while I was walking to the meat-n-three at the crossroads to pay the water bill.

I had to blink a few times to make sure I was really seeing what I thought I was seeing. Isn't it a bit early? Why are they ripe on May 15?

Finding these blackberries (which were delicious, thanks for asking) prompted me to take a gander at our own berry patch. It is progressing as I expected: the berries are tiny and green. But wow...I don't think I can convey the sheer enormity of the blackberry patch we have on our property. We are talking millions upon millions of berries.

July is going to be fun!
