Blackberries are ready for jam!

Our wooded trails are loaded with wild blackberry bushes.  They are wonderful for making jams and jellies but are very small and contain lots of seeds.  I only picked the periphery for I was not prepared with long pants and long sleeves.  First batch of jam made today.  It is well worth the time it takes to pick them.  More jam tomorrow!

All of our trails are named.
