Those look nice @fullplate, big berries too.
A brief report on our berry plants:
Our Patriot blueberry has 4 little berries on it now, after I had picked one off to sample. It was still a bit sour, so I’ll leave the other be for a few more days.
Our Razorback blackberries continue to do very well, PAF is about 30", PAT and Osage are about 20" and Ouachita is about 24". My five Triple Crown plants are lagging behind a bit, but have done pretty well. But, I was greatly annoyed to see that 3 of them had some leaves stripped off. Must be deer as a few nearby potatoes were munched on too. My reaction was, “you f-ers have 1000 acres of lush green grass, plants, trees and other stuff to graze on, and you have to destroy my plants!”
Ok, back to be report. The strawberries are done, my wife picked a few earlier this week, and now there’s more weeds.
The gooseberries are still green, not ready yet.
The raspberry run has been almost taken over by weeds also, but I have kept them off the plants. My Royalty and Double Gold appear to be toast. Killarney is still the biggest grower so far, while the Bristol, Mac Black, Prelude, and Nova had made modest gains. My two red everbearers, Caroline and Joan J are struggling, but still hanging in there.
Our wild blackcaps are just now starting to ripen up, we picked a few today. Not bad, but a bit tart. The wild blackberries still haven’t formed up much.
