Blackberries, Raspberries and Grapes

Wild Blackberries starting to ripen..

 Tame Blackberries soon to start ripening.

Black Raspberries at different stages.

Grapes growing.

I use some of these fresh...the rest I freeze or can and make juices/jams/jellies with.

Our blueberries and apples were killed this year due to the early warm weather and a late frost :(
I will be getting these locally this year..I make applebutter/freeze apples for pies and freeze the blueberries for fruit smoothies,etc :)

My grandmother had wild blackberries growing all along her really, really long driveway. I miss the summer vacations to her house and picking them and eating them with cream and sugar. Ah, memories!!

Ohhhh....I *love* blackberries!! Our local ones don't ripen until middle to end of August. Sooo far away. :) Enjoy!
