Ripe for the Picking

The next fruit available for me to pick this season is blackberries.  Our cultivated patch is particularly prolific this year.  I'm really not sure why.  I prefer the taste of the wild ones in the patch that we started a few years ago from a cutting  imported from my father-in-law's Saanich garden.  Unfortunately it has nowhere near the number of berries found on our prickle-free cultivars that were here when we moved in.  In about a week,  there's going to be a very large amount about to fall off the vines.  They are juicy and sweet and I might be talked into giving some away if you want to help me pick!
