|Blackberries, Crab Apples & Milkweed Buds|
It's blackberry season around here! Today I found about a third of the blackberries on the shrub ready for picking (Winstead Park in Franklin, TN). It's also a great time to start picking crab apples for making jelly (PGS in Franklin, TN). They are not completely ripe yet which is what you want to get the most pectin. I also found some milkweed buds (Winstead Park in Franklin, TN) which is great for soups and stir fry.
