Blackberry Picking Time

It’s that time of the Year in Louisiana- Blackberry time. They grow wild here along the road and leave  but becauses of clearing and spraying of pesticide  there’s lots less.  These sweet berries when i was a child was plentiful – but now you might have to hunt around for them. Make sure you dress appropriately -because some times these wild berries are in hard to reach spots. There brambling nature make the job tough but the reward is so sweet.    Lisa
