A bock away from our house is the start of the bike path that leads to downtown that Jared takes to work. We decided to take a walk down it last week and found a lot of blackberry patches that weren't quite ready. Last night we went back and picked over 5lbs of blackberries! The best part is that this path is not along a road, so they are all clean and free of car fumes. There were still a lot of berries not ready to pick, so I'm sure we'll get even more in a week or two. Now we have to make and freeze some pies, mini cheesecakes and syrup. There were also a lot of sweet peas growing (I'm not sure if it's ok to pick them or not) so I grabbed a small bunch.
