The wild blackberries along the riverbank are back. After the tornado last year, the marina cut back the blackberry bushes, so far back that there were no berries last summer. This year, they are back with a vengeance. The rain probably helped. I'm no blackberry fan, but I have the utmost respect for this plant. It is able to bear sweet berries while fighting for survival against massive weeds, bugs and other critters.

I'm tired from the picking. Next time, I'll post a recipe of one of my favorite dishes - chicken, pork or beef with jalapeno peppers. I'm freezing the blackberries for another boater, who has all kinds of ideas for them.
Care to share your summer harvest?
