GUYS!!! GUYS!! The blackberries are in!!! I am so excited!! I went out yesterday and collected enough for 2 CSA boxes and a batch of jam, which will make about 8 jars of jam. Meaning…. as long as I can get to it today we should have jam at the farmers market on Saturday!!!
I love blackberry season! I love being able to bring cartons of blackberries to the market, and have jam, and have enough blackberries for the family to eat all kinds of blackberry desserts and frozen blackberries with sugar and cream. Delicious!!!
The only downside to blackberry season are the bug bites!!! I forgot to put on bug spray and am now absolutely covered in bug bites. The worst are the chigger bites. My legs have become a giant chigger bite. They itch like crazy and keep me from getting good sleep. It’s awful!!! I have tried creams, sprays, tea tree oil, baking soda, nothing is working to relieve the itch. If you have any suggestions PLEASE SEND HELP!!!
