Yep! Our winter was almost non-existant this year, and our spring and summer has been really warm, so everything is ahead of schedule. We usually get black raspberries (which I LOVE more than blackberries!) in June, but this year they ripened in May. Blackberries are usually July, but we've been picking them almost every day for 2-3 weeks now. We're getting 1.5 to 3 gallons a day--I have 4 gallons in my fridge that I need to do something with, plus a batch in the dehydrator. We're eating blackberry crumb cake for breakfast this morning, so whoever suggested that one it sure is good!

Re: Blackberry overload

We LOVE fruit leather. A galon of cleaned ones supposidily go for $20 here. That's just what our FIL told us. We plan to go picking as soon as we get back from our trip next week. We went last week but it was still too early. Sounds like I'd be in hog heaven there, haha!
