Blackberry Field Report - updated 14 August 2017, 8:29 AM

Berry Quality: Mostly good Picking Ease: moderate Stage: Almost Done

We did not have time to prune this year, so picking is a little rough. There is some poison ivy; those who are allergic will want long pants or wash their legs promptly. As is usual near the end of the season, some have dried up.
