    I never had a dewberry before but they look great. You are lucky to have such a berry bush close by.

    I have never had dewberries either; our boysenberries and blackberries are just now flowering. How will you use them?

    We grew dewberries in our garden when I was a teenager. They were so good and juicy. Maybe I will add them to my garden. I am jealous. My neighbor just came over yesterday and invited me to come over and pick fresh strawberries. They have a huge patch. May go today, But we got 3.5 inches of rain last night and it is so wet today. Enjoy your Berries.

    Those dewberries grow like weeds around here, we are lucky to have stuff like that growing in the wild. It's almost end of harvesting them, there're getting over ripe.That spot we found makes it really easy to pick them.
    My MIL likes to make juice from them & make jelly... but it's hard to get thru all those begging chickens without emptying my bucket. [​IMG]
    This is gross, but have you ever seen purple chicken poop???? [​IMG] They have been like little pigs. [​IMG]
    We've got some tame berries that are ripening by our garden, I'll take some pics maybe yall could tell me what kind they are.We've always called them Susie berries cause we got them from a lady named Susie.... [​IMG]
    Yeah Mudhen come on down now, ya here ! We'll go crawfishing [​IMG]

    Are they relatives of blackberries?

    here's our "Susie" berries they run down along our garden area. If everyone knows what kind they are ,let me know...

    My MIL had just went & picked most of the ripe berries just before I took this picture.She's going to make a berry cobbler.[​IMG] I heard of some folks making wine.
    These are alot bigger than the wild dew berries.It's hard to describe their taste... [​IMG]
    hi Spotted Crow, I don't know if they are related or not....
