Got some real nice ones yesterday and had my first bowl of blackberry cobbler with ice cream last night right before the monsoons hit:D.

Anyone else getting any good ones? The ones I picked were all basically knee level and below.

Going to have to agree with Magis. Probably black raspberrys. Instead of wasting them on cobbler make WINE!!!

Got tons of them on the property. One of the best years in a while. You can pick them off the 4 wheeler on the trails they are so thick.

I always thought blackberries were larger than "razzzzberries". The ones I picked were approx. an inch and as big around as your thumb. Going back this weekend after the grounds dries a little to get another batch.

Dovans, I have a friend who makes wine so he might get a bucket of them also.

Just went through google pics and they were blackberries. So, I'm putting the bug spray on today and tomorrow and going to fill up a few buckets...

This thread took me down memory lane. Sitting here in shorts and glanced down at the 4 inch scar on my right calf that I got while picking berries in southern WVa as a kid (also in shorts, and nearly 60 years ago!) Walked out of the patch and saw my tennis shoe was full of blood. Never felt anything, probably thought I'd gotten scratched by a thorn -must have been an old piece of barbed wire! Remember it like it was yesterday.

Just for reference, size doesn't really have anything to do with what species they are. Raspberries have a hollow core when picked, and the white core stays in blackberries when picked, so they have a solid core. Raspberries are sweet, blackberries are very tart, unless so ripe they're mushy.
