The first of the blackberries are ripe. Yum. We all sampled a few and I have first dibs for my cereal tomorrow. I found the first 2 ripe berries in our yard and that convinced me to go check out the berries behind the elementary school. Yep, ripe berries - not a lot yet, but there were some, and they were worth picking, thanks to all the rain we've gotten this spring. All told I got maybe a cup full, so they'll all be gone tomorrow I'd guess. But now I have visions of blackberry cobbler.
