OK, since folks have already posted some pics of some blackberries and strawberries in the daily thread, I thought we should start a new one on this year’s berry harvest.
Whatever you’re growing and picking, be it blacks, rasps, gooseberries, blues, strawbs, service, goji, honeyberries, elderberries, currants, huckleberries, you name it, please post your pics and reports on your plants’ progress and your berry harvests.
As for us, we have Earliglow strawbs ripening now, and hope to sample some soon. Our Jewel plants are blooming and have very small green fruits on them. These were planted last year.
With our two year old gooseberries, we have Oregon Champion producing a couple dozen fruit, and a Jeanne plant with some small berries.
I planted lots of brambles over the last couple of months, so no harvest there, obviously. But all 10 of the new rasps and 4 blackberry plants have sprouted, and 5 Triple Crown’s are up. Hopefully the primocane varieties will give us a few berries to sample later in the year. We have a summer red and fall bearer that was planted last year, but don’t think they’'ll produce any this year.
Our blueberries are still small, planted last year, but our Patriot plant does have 3 or 4 berries on it, so I might let them mature.
Alrighty then, let’s see some of y’all’s delicious berries!
