    My parents have blackberries at their house. Still a couple weeks away.

    I've found several here in Missouri. Not large quantities though.

    The patches around my yard are starting to ripen. The blueberries are too.
    Gonna have to make lots of jam this Summer.

    Mmmmmm...Yum!! It's a shame you live in Missouri!! Haha!
    My husband, Buddy, made some Dewberry jelly earlier this season, but we've been too busy fishing lately to look for blackberries. A friend of ours raises them to sell at our local Farmer's Market, though. Last year they had some as big as (I'm not kidding!) a C-cell battery!! Awesome!

    Got out with tractor and bushog and mowed paths around blackberry patches on the farm,seen a few ripe.Going over enough ground to pick four or five gallon picked a quart to make small cobbler for tonight.
