other things out right now...

Just wanted to let you know black raspberry season is getting pretty good here in SE MI right now, so get out there and pick some berries!

I made my first blueberry pie yesterday. Jackson county. High-bush. It's just the first few berries that are ripe. I'm worried it's gonna be a tough year, but haven't visited enough places yet.
If you find woods with the viney milkweeds called swallow-worts, please contact DNR and report it: http://mnfi.anr.msu.edu/invasive-spe...ow-wortBCP.pdf. I was doing rapid response killing of it yesterday in Waterloo Rec area (as a volunteer steward). Learn Asiatic bittersweet too, which will threaten to make some places impenetrable without machetes.

We've had Black Raspberries for a couple of weeks here in Berrien Co. The plentiful rain seems to have made them juicier this year. However, the plentiful rain has made the mosquitoes plentiful this year as well.

Black Raspberries just starting to come in good here. Have had tons of mulberries this year. Made some jelly.

Re: other things out right now...

yeah i have good mulberries every year! got a tree in my back yard, for how small it is, that thing puts off the berries! made the best cobbler (it was more of just a crumble top than a cobbler) with the mullberries... OMG best one ive ever had. Now i'm in mass freezing mode, freezing every berry i can get my hands on!! single layer on a sheet pan for freezing is by far the best.

There are 16 to 18 varieties of mulberries but most the trees are the same variety.

One tree I stumbled upon has berries the size of blackberries. They are sweeter than the common variety.

I love them but the only place I see them is in the yards I spray pesticides in. No bueno.
